This glorious book allows the reader to revel in Hopper's most well-known and masterful works, reproduced one after the other, often at full page, in full colour; but it also enables you to rediscover the artist, to delve further than the obvious paintings in order to fully understand his motivations, and then to reassess his works in a fresh light. Before the 'Masterpieces' section, some thoughtful text discusses Hopper from a number of angles, laying the groundwork with Life & Times, travelling through the Places that inspired him, examining his key Subjects & Themes, and explaining the Styles & Techniques by which he was influenced or to which he subscribed, not forgetting his lasting legacy. All the while his works are cross-referenced, so you get the most out of the paintings. Whether the treatment of light and sense of place of Lighthouse at Two Lights appeals to your senses, or you are captivated by the untold story of the pensive woman in Automat, Edward Hopper Masterpieces will be a book to treasure and revisit.
