Edward Hopper: Portraits of America by Wieland Schmied

Now available again, this book is a penetrating exploration of the American realist painter Edward Hopper, who was able to capture the many moods of the nation he called home. From his images of deserted small towns and solitary figures in empty offices to his cheerfully tranquil New England landscapes, Hopper’s most famous compositions can be seen as products of a life spent observing human nature. Hopper’s images evoke an enigmatic uncertainty, which speaks to the heart of the American experience. Hopper’s talent for depicting multiple aspects of the post-war experience is the focus of this generously illustrated and engaging volume.
