Product description

Review

A fresh look at Hopper's iconic vision of the American landscape - its gas stations, diners and highways. Edward Hopper's world-famous, instantly recognizable paintings articulate an idiosyncratic view of modern life, unfolding in a world of lonely lighthouses, gas stations, movie theaters, bars and hotel rooms. With his impressive subjects, independent pictorial vocabulary and virtuoso play of colors, Hopper's work continues to this day to color our memory and imaginary of the United States in the first half of the Twentieth Century.-- "Antiques and The Arts Weekly"

Hopper rejected the formulas and rules that governed landscape painting before his time. While the Hudson River School and its European predecessors saw land as a well-composed, static entity, Hopper's landscapes suggest that not everything has been neatly captured in view. "Landscape is an image of nature that doesn't change, but nature is changing," the exhibition's curator Ulf Küster recently said, mentioning the Australian bushfires and the threat of climate change. "Hopper makes changing nature visible. He shows landscape as part of something bigger, something that is perhaps beyond our control."--Lauren Ford "Art and Object"

The visual bard of American solitude--not loneliness, a maudlin projection--speaks to our isolated states these days with fortuitous poignance. [...] I haven't seen "Edward Hopper: A Fresh Look at Landscape," a large show at the lately reopened Beyeler Foundation... I take its fine catalogue, edited by the exhibition's curator, Ulf Küster, as occasion enough for reflecting anew on the artist's stubborn force.--Peter Schjeldahl "New Yorker"

Casting a caustic eye on modernity and a watchful one upon nature, Hopper ranks among the most haunting of the last Romantics.--David Anfam "Art Newspaper"

Edward Hopper's world-famous, instantly recognizable paintings articulate an idiosyncratic view of modern life, unfolding in a world of lonely lighthouses, gas stations, movie theaters, bars and hotel rooms.--Editors "ARTFIXdaily"

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book
Reviewed in the United States on 20 October 2020
This lovely new book on Edward Hopper is great. However if you already own the monographs on Hopper by Lloyd Goodrich and later by Gail Levin this one will have nothing much new to offer you.
