The creator of pictures that John Updike called “calm, silent, stoic, luminous, classic,” Edward Hopper produced many works now considered icons of modern art. Now in its third printing, this extensive new assessment of Hopper examines the dynamics of his creative process and discusses his work within the cultural currents of his day. Illustrated with more than 150 oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, this is the most comprehensive volume on Hopper to be published in many years.

Editorial Reviews
“More than a feast for the eyes…[This book] brings forth overlooked aspects of Hopper’s art and make clear that his art was much more complex and layered than suggested at first glance” (Cleveland Plain Dealer).
“This lovely, well-organized book [provides] a meticulously well-articulated account of Hopper and his world” (Michigan Quarterly Review). “Excels at examining the painter’s work in the context of other artists and American culture” (Rain Taxi).
