Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A definitive biography." Robert Hughes, Time "A nearly flawless account of a remarkable artist . . . a compelling and accessible narrative for anyone even remotely interested in modern American art." Michael Kammen, The New York Times Book Review This acclaimed biography of Edward Hopper is essential reading for anyone interested in the world-famous realist artist. This second, expanded edition doubles the number of illustrations, and includes a new section of paintings in color. A newly added section on Hopper's international influence on culture, especially on contemporary art, poetry, and cinema, makes this edition unique. The original biography (Edward Hopper: An Intimate Biography, Knopf, 1995) has long been considered the seminal review of Edward Hopper's life and work. The biography's focus is the laconic, introverted painter's stormy forty-three-year marriage to outspoken and gregarious Josephine ("Jo") Nivison, herself an artist, and draws extensively on Jo Hopper's intimate diaries, which she kept from the early 1930s until shortly before her death in 1968 (just 10 months after her husband died).

Book News Annotation:

Levin (art history, City U. of New York-Baruch College and Graduate Center) updates her biography of American painter Hopper (1882-1967), which was first published in 1995 by Alfred A. Knopf. Three new essays discuss his legacy for visual arts and for cinema, and the recovery of Jo Nivison Hopper. Also included are nearly 100 color reproductions.
