Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Hopper (1882-1967) is best-known for his portrayals of nocturnal loneliness in an urban setting. His landscapes and seascapes, inspired by summers spent in coastal Maine, Glouster, Cape Cod, and the hills of Vermont, share a similar sense of desolation and stillness. Little draws from the many standard studies, then adds his own personal criticisms, to develop the 12-page essay that accompanies the 35 color plates in this slim, handsomely designed picture book. Additional black-and-white illustrations are tucked into the margins of the essay. This will be of interest mainly to general readers with a love of the region.

Review

A previous edition was published in 1993, but there's no doubt that the world has room for this revised and reformatted second edition collection of work by painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967). The format is relatively small for an art book (10.5x9 inches)--a pleasant size that accommodates full-page presentation of 33 paintings. Art writer Little (formerly director of the Blum Gallery at the College of the Atlantic) provides the text, explaining that Hopper spent all his summers in New England and that these were highly productive times for him. A selected bibliography completes the book. --2011, Book News Inc. Portland, OR

By Timothy Kearney VINE VOICE on October 17, 2003
Format: Hardcover
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.

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!
