Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edward Hopper holds an important place in twentieth-century American art. In his scenes of urban and rural life—canvases that reveal his rare, highly focused technical accomplishment and his deep psychological penetration—he created indelible images that often convey the loneliness of persons within their environment. Highly individual, instantly recognizable, his works are among the most esteemed in collections of American art.

The Whitney Museum of American Art is the biggest repository of works by Edward Hopper. In its collection are a large number of Hopper drawings, powerful works that teach us not only about Hoppers technique and vision but also about the art of drawing itself. This book presents 44 major Hopper drawings, executed in crayon, charcoal, pencil, and other primarily monochromatic media, most of them reproduced directly from originals in the museum's collection. Some of these compelling works are studies for paintings. Many reveal familiar Hopper territory: Manhattan streets, a lighthouse on the Atlantic seacoast, the rural Northeast, and more.

This inexpensive edition offers a wonderful opportunity for artists and art lovers to study the unique range and evocative power of Hoppers draftsmanship. Those mastering and refining their drawing skills will discover in these pages a rich source of inspiration and instruction.
