Hopper’s Places (Second Edition)
By Gail Levin
Published by University of California Press © 1998
Softcover, 166 pages
In the acclaimed first edition of Hopper’s Places, Gail Levin paired paintings by Edward Hopper with photographs of the subjects of paintings done in New York, Maine, Gloucester, and Cape Cod to demonstrate how Hopper made art of everyday scenes. For the new second edition, Levin has added documentary photographs and Hopper’s paintings of sites in Paris, Charleston, Gettysburg, the western United States and Mexico to give a broader view of the range of his work and the power with which he transformed his subjects while still remaining faithful to their essential features.
