What makes an artist see more than we see?

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2015-02-10) Excellent Permalink

The author and the illustrator take on the task of helping us to understand and see the world through the eyes and mind of Edward Hopper.  A great book for showing something of the perspective communicated by this artist.  The Afterword and sources are very useful and helpful.
