Format: Hardcover
Please note: If it isn't clear from the editorial review or the description above, this book shows Hopper's oil paintings only. It is one half of a set, the other, titled The Watercolors of Edward Hopper, showing watercolors only!
There are many Hopper books out there today, but none is as pictorially complete as this one (the one exception is Levin's Catalogue Raisonne, from which this book was derived). The pictures and information are wonderful. Levin has arranged the works in chronological order, so you can follow Hopper's progression through his career. The colors are good and the paintings - one to a page - are well documented whenever possible. I have several Hopper books yet I refer to this one again and again because it is so complete. There is minimal text here; it's not Hopper's life story or an account of each paintings development - though there are a few notable exceptions, such as Nighthawks. What it is is a complete archive of his oil paintings from art school to the end of his life. It's a wonderful book that any serious Hopper fan should consider. Levin should be congratulated on her work. Highly recommended.
Other recommended books include all of Levin's works, including the complete prints, the aforementioned watercolor book, and her biography to name a few. Other excellent books are Edward Hopper by Hobbs, Hopper's journal by Lyons, and Edward Hopper: the watercolors by Mecklinburg.

Format: Hardcover
I return to this book over and over . The pictures are beautifully presented and big enough! All in color with some of his preliminary drawings/sketches in B/W in the preface. Also includes some of his watercolors. The text I haven't read much of, being more mesmerized by the paintings, but the little I've perused was engaging. Whether you are a connisseur or a beginner with Hopper, you will find this book invaluable.
