Basic Art Series: Hopper
By Rolf G. Renner
Struggling artist turned icon of the modern, urban experience, Edward Hopper is most famed for his haunting nocturnal diner scene Nighthawks. This book introduces his mastery of place, mood, and melancholy through vivid color juxtapositions; stark, theatrical lighting; as well as harshly contoured figures, at once part of, and alien to, their surroundings.
