Hoppers art was profoundly of its time, both in its expression of the subtle melancholies of modern life and in its deeply cinematic qualities perhaps Hoppers greatest gift was his treatment of light to which directors from Alfred Hitchcock to Wim Wenders have paid homage. This volume presents a definitive Hopper monograph. Published for a massive retrospective at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, and the Grand Palais in Paris, it approaches Hoppers relatively small oeuvre in two sections.
The first covers the artists formative years from approximately 1900 to 1924, examining a selection of sketches, paintings, drawings, illustrations, prints and watercolours, which are considered alongside works by painters that influenced Hopper, such as Winslow Homer, Robert Henri, John Sloan, Edgar Degas and Walter Sickert. The second section considers the years from 1925 onwards, addressing his mature output through chronological but thematic groupings. Comprehensive in its scope, with a wealth of colour reproductions, Hopper is the last word on the artist.
