Spanning the entirety of Hoppers career, but with particular emphasis on his heyday in the 1930s and 40s, this book highlights the artist's 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 over 150 oils, watercolours and prints, and including essays by several noted scholars in the field, this is the most comprehensive volume on Hopper to be published in many years.
