Publisher Comments:

As Adam Gopnik has said about this book, "Mark Strand looks more deeply into Hopper's pictures than anyone has before." In the page or two that accompanies each of the 32 paintings — including "Nighthawks, " "Gas 1940, " "People in the Sun, " "Automat" — Strand leads us into an astonishingly complex and aesthetically satisfying way of seeing that particular work and the whole of Hopper's oeuvre. Approaching a painting visually, or formally, he subtly draws us to a place where what the painting has to say us is free of the usual sociological or psychological terms in which Hopper is discussed. In Strand's own words he shows that "Hopper's paintings locate the viewer in a virtual space where the influence and availability of feeling predominate."<P>"Hopper" is a gift to anyone who is interested in the painter, or in fact in any painter — it expands the way we look at a work of art.

US

Synopsis:

Illustrated in sumptuous color for the first time: Mark Strand's acclaimed examination of the art of the great American painter Edward Hopper.

In thirty brief, elegantly expressive, illuminating essays--each one accompanying a single painting--Strand takes the poet's entrance into the silent world of Hopper with a gift of words that allows a painter and a poet to become partners in opening the windows of the imagination (Wayne Thiebaud).

From the Hardcover edition.
