Edward Hopper and the American imagination by Deborah Lyons ( Book )

This volume includes fifty-nine of Hopper's most important works in full color as well as original works by fiction writers and poets that pay homage to, or make reference to, the ways in which Hopper pictured our world. Hopper's themes of alienation and loneliness, empty cityscapes and countrysides, the stark light of Cape Cod, silent hills and houses - all have been indelibly imprinted on our collective sense of ourselves and our country. This work celebrates the impact Hopper's imagery continues to have on contemporary culture and is dedicated to a fuller understanding of Hopper's place in the American mind

Edward Hopper, 1882-1967 : vision of reality by Ivo Kranzfelder ( Book )
15 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents a survey of the painting of American artist Edward Hopper (1882-1967). While most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching. In both his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life, depicting the loneliness of big-city people in canvas after canvas. 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 natural and man-made environments sometimes lends his pictures a mood of eerie disquiet

Edward Hopper by Edward Hopper ( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Spanning the entirety of Hopper's career, but with particular emphasis on his heyday in the twenties, thirties, and forties, Edward Hopper highlights his greatest achievements while discussing such topics as his absorption of European influences, critical reactions to his work, the relation of realism to modernism, his fascination with architecture, his depiction of women, and the struggle in his last years to produce original works. Illustrated with more than 150 of his oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, and including essays by several noted scholars in the field and an extensive chronology and bibliography, this is the most comprehensive volume on Hopper to be published in many years."--BOOK JACKET

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silent theater : the art of Edward Hopper by Walter Wells ( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Edward Hopper (1882-1967) is the greatest painter of American experience in the twentieth century. Hopper's enigmatic images speak to the modern world's deep concern with the human condition. In compositions that encompass the city and nature - ranging from theater interiors, hotels, restaurants, street scenes, railways and gas stations to landscapes and the sea - Hopper created a moving visual poetry. Indeed, Hopper's most celebrated paintings, such as Railroad Sunset, Early Sunday Morning and Nighthawks, have become world-famous icons of America's alternating sense of alienation and self-identity." "This monograph examines Hopper's art from diverse literary, psychological and cultural perspectives, yielding numerous fresh insights into his output. Detailed discussion of a wide array of Hopper's canvases, watercolors, etchings and meticulous sketches explores how the artist's troubled marriage, emotions and obsessive themes influenced his vision."--BOOK JACKET

Edward Hopper's New York by Avis Berman ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Illustrated by over 50 of Edward Hopper's most powerful evocations of New York, Avis Berman's essay explores how Hopper and his work illuminate each other by analyzing what his New York is - and is not. Ever the contrarian, he offers an alternative to what other American artists seized on - the new, the gigantic, the technologically exciting. Hopper stayed away from tourist attractions or landmarks of the city's glamorous skyline. His preference for nondescript vernacular buildings is emblematic of the larger Hopper paradox: he makes emptiness full, silence articulate, banality intense, plainness mysterious, and tawdriness noble."--BOOK JACKET
