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."
