Edward Hopper, one of the most important American painters of the twentieth century, spent nearly every summer of his prolific career in New England—a region with coastal views, mansardroofed houses, and a still light that served as the inspiration of many of Hopper's greatest works. This comprehensive collection presents some of Hopper's finest paintings of New England, providing a guide to the places that resonated so deeply with the artist throughout his career.

Carl Little's essay examines the crucial role New England played in Hopper's development and considers the full range of his work devoted to this subject: early etchings and radiant watercolors; architectural paintings of Victorian mansions, factories, barns, and summer cottages; and magnificent sailing pictures through which Hopper expressed his lifelong love of the sea. Also included are late-career psychological paintings—composites of the landscape with figures—which convey the loneliness and isolation for which Hopper's work is best known.

On the coast of Maine, along the shore of Cape Ann, among the hills of Vermont and the bluffs of Cape Cod, Edward Hopper found the New England landscape to suit his sensibility. Edward Hopper's New England explores the artist's profound relationship with the region, from his scenes of Gloucester's sail-filled harbors and sunlit streets to his monumental lighthouse paintings, which have become icons of American art.

Back in print, this second, revised edition of the classic best-seller offers an updated, fresh design. Includes selected bibliography.

Edward Hopper (July 22, 1882 – May 15, 1967) was an American realist painter and printmaker. While he is best known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching. Both in his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life. Hopper was born in 1882 in Upper Nyack, New York, a yacht-building center on the Hudson River north of New York City.

I am a fan of Edward Hopper's works, so I love this book. The first 12 pages are filled with a concise biography and history that gives the reader an understanding of the subject matter and the artistic renderings of Edward Hopper. The author gives a short summary of each of the 35 paintings that you find in the rest of the book. The 35 prints are 6x9 inches, and when viewing you will see the information about the painting on the left hand side of the open page, and on the right hand is a single print in color.

Great book!

EDWARD HOPPER'S NEW ENGLAND is a collection of some of Hopper's works of art inspired during his travels in New England. Though Hopper was primarily a New York artist, he spent many summers in New England and produced many of his most memorable paintings during his visits. Some of his visits were to New England's best known artist colonies such as Gloucester, Monhegan Island in Maine, and Provincetown. People familiar with current Cape Cod artists will see the way in which Hopper inspired a good number of them when they see his paintings of Truro and Provincetown, two of Hopper's favorite locales. Many of the locations can still be found today, though they have changed over the years. The paintings of Gloucester bring the simplicity of this old fishing community alive. The pictures from Maine are some of Hopper's famous depictions of lighthouses and sailing vessels. Some nature scenics are also included in this volume. The landscapes, architecture, boats, and people depicted in Hopper's work show his range as an artist.
People who love Hopper's work will appreciate this book because it contains not only some of Hopper's better known works from various museums but also works in private collections.
Hopper's subjects are not complex, nor are they glamorous in and of themselves, but with an artist such as Hopper, we are able top see beauty in places we might otherwise miss. This book is a must for people who love and appreciate artists' renditions of New England. It is also a perfect gift for people who love New England.
