Edward Hopper Oversize book of works.
Published in 1992, 24 pages, 10 1/4 x 14 inches
"Edward Hopper (1882-1967) is best known for his haunting views of depression-era America. In this book, Karal Ann Marling, Professor of Art History at the University of Minnesota, closeley relates these powerful but sometimes elliptical works to the personality of the artist himself. Many of the images are full page and would be suitable for framing.

From the dustjacket:
Edward Hopper (1882 - 1967) is considered the first significant American painter in twentieth-century art. After decades of patient work, Hopper enjoyed a success and popularity that since the 1950s have continually grown. Living in a secluded country house with his wife Josephine, he depicted the loneliness of big-city people in canvas after canvas. Probably the most famous of them, Nighthawks, done in 1942, shows a couple seated quietly, as if turned inwards upon themselves, in the harsh artificial light of an all-night restaurant. Many of Hopper's pictures represent views of streets and roads, rooftops, abandoned houses, depicted in brilliant light that strangely belies the melancholy mood of the scenes. Hopper's paintings are marked by striking juxta-positions of color, and by the clear contours with which the figures are demarcated from their surroundings. His extremely precise focus on the theme of modern men and women in the natural and man-made environment sometimes lends his pictures a mood of eerie disquiet. In House by the Railroad, a harsh interplay of light and shadow makes the abandoned building seem veritably threatening. On the other hand, Hopper's renderings of rocky landscapes in warm brown hues, or his depictions of the seacoast, exude an unusual tranquillity that reveals another, more optimistic side of his character.
Over 200 illustrations, most in full color make this a must have book for the Hopper fan.
