Edward Hopper's artistic-vision was all a matter of shadow & light.

Born in Upper Nyack, NY (1882) - Edward Hopper was a prominent realist painter who, very much, represented and influenced his generation of American artists.

Determined to become a successful artist at a young age - Hopper did not achieve any notable recognition for his work until he was 40 years old.

A quiet and introverted man - Hopper's paintings thoughtfully reflect his own personal vision of modern, American life.

This glossy volume contains most of Hopper's most recognizable works. It also includes a brief overview of his life and critique of his art.

(*Note*) - In 1967 - Edward Hopper (84 at the time) died from natural causes.
