Item description for Edward Hopper: Portraits Of America (Pegasus) by Wieland Schmied...

A penetrating exploration of the American realist painter, who was able to capture the many moods of the nation he called home.

Edward Hopper's talent for depicting multiple aspects of the post-war experience is the focus of this flexi-cover edition of Edward Hopper: Portraits of America. From his images of deserted small towns and solitary figures in empty offices to his cheerfully tranquil New England landscapes, Hopper's most famous compositions are presented as products of a life spent observing human nature. Hopper's images evoke an enigmatic uncertainty, which speaks to the heart of the American experience.

Reviews - What do customers think about Edward Hopper: Portraits Of America (Pegasus)?

An easy start to appreciate Hopper's work.  Dec 10, 1999
This book is quite easy to read while sometimes it's not easy to enjoy the pleasure of an art work. Edward Hopper, an icon of the realistic painter of the U.S.. Solitude, isolation and alienation are common emergence in many Hopper's work. It's like reading a novel of metaphor leaving "readers" a huge space to imagine the context of the painting. The book provides a lot of clues for us to step into the "Literatural world" of Hopper.
