Edward Hopper: Forty Masterworks by Schirmer's Visual Library
Edward Hopper (1882-1967) is generally considered the major twentieth-century realist. Such paintings as House by the Railroad, Early Sunday Morning, and Nighthawks seem to embody the loneliness of the individual in the cities and open spaces of America. Hopper strongly influenced contemporary American art, and there are countless photographs and films inspired by his work. The forty paintings in this volume give a representative overview of Hopper's art.
