A simply must have book for the American Art Library. A well constructed combination history, biography, and art critique work.

I want to frame the dust jacket!

Will this book make you a Hopper fan? No, but that's O.K. as he wouldn't probably have cared anyway. But if you have even one or two favorites that are his work, or you like one of two of his works and that is your only familiarity with Hopper, you will be intrigued if not captivated by this collection.

This is a book to be experienced, not read. Truly beautiful and vibrant, it's a must-have for anyone who appreciates Hopper's amazing talents.
One of the best books I've ever read. Certainly comprehensive, detailed, persuasive, insightful. Fantastic!
Arguably the best book on Hopper to date.
