Overview

A unique book of facsimile pages culled from Hopper's personal ledger books.
Edward Hopper, with the help of his wife, Jo, kept scrupulously detailed notes of all his artwork and business transactions in five accountants' ledger books. Here, in a selection of facsimile pages, we see the artist as businessman, recording everything from exhibitions and reviews to sales, commissions, and resales of his varied works.
Hopper sketched most of his paintings and prints in these pages, in either pen and ink or pencil. Occasionally he added a printed reproduction as they became available. In addition to all business transactions associated with the work, Jo Hopper wrote descriptions of the colors and materials used, the subject matter, as well as personal anecdotes. In this intriguing volume, we are given a rare glimpse of this often-unseen aspect of an artist's life. We can see clearly the Hoppers' necessity and penchant for methodical record keeping and how they were able to achieve financial security through the artist's work.

    Excellent and very interesting

    This is a wonderful glimpse into the development of Hopper's paintings from 1919 to 1956. It appears to be a photocopy of Hopper's working journals, which were assembled and maintained by his wife Jo over a period of 30+ years. Jo wrote descriptive text and Edward drew a thumbnail sketch for each painting. For many of the paintings, the text includes the brand of paint (e.g., Rembrandt, Blockx, W&N), the type of canvas and the priming, the studio in which it was painted, and to whom it was sold. Jo frequently included a description of the place, the people, or the mood portrayed in the paintings. If you're an artist or a serious Hopper fan, you'll enjoy this book.
