Riassunto: More than any other artist, Edward Hopper (18821967) made the unique visual landscape of the American city his own. In his works, all-night diners, motel rooms, and deserted, after-hours offices are sparsely populated with isolated, brooding figures. While never directly narrative, his restrained and carefully handled oils and watercolors have a timeless, universal quality that has long struck a chord with a huge international audience.
From paintings made in Paris in the early 1900s to iconic views of Manhattan created more than 60 years later, this book examines Hopper's work in the context of both American and European painting from the turn of the 20th century to the 1960s. The influence that film and other forms of popular culture had on Hopper is explored here for the first time. Published to accompany a major retrospective exhibition at Tate Modern in London, this stunning book is the definitive work on this quintessentially American artist.
Sinossi: Hopper made the unique visual landscape of the American city all his own. All-night diners, filling stations, motel rooms and deserted offices are populated by isolated, brooding figures. This work on the quintessentially American artist accompanies a retrospective at Tate Modern, Summer 2004.
