Overview

As a major twentieth-century artist, Hopper challenged us to see the ordinary in a new way. His paintings are heavily evocative of the moods of their subjects and present an occasionally voyeuristic view, as if we are intruding on a private moment of the subject. Among his themes are loneliness and alienation and America's urban and rural landscape. Many of his most recognizable and some rarely-seen images make up this volume which features information on his early life, training, and his influences. Hopper was not given to discussing his work in great detail. What he did say. rather succinctly was, "The whole answer is there on the canvas".
