Edward Hopper's New York by Avis Berman( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and French and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Illustrated by over 50 of Edward Hopper's most powerful evocations of New York, Avis Berman's essay explores how Hopper and his work illuminate each other by analyzing what his New York is - and is not. Ever the contrarian, he offers an alternative to what other American artists seized on - the new, the gigantic, the technologically exciting. Hopper stayed away from tourist attractions or landmarks of the city's glamorous skyline. His preference for nondescript vernacular buildings is emblematic of the larger Hopper paradox: he makes emptiness full, silence articulate, banality intense, plainness mysterious, and tawdriness noble."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spanning a twenty year career of Van Doren's work - originating with his Beaux Arts training at Columbia University, and culminating with his position as Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome - this comprehensive volume includes abundant views along the Grand Tour, highlighting the magnificent as well as the more vernacular structures of Paris, Venice, Rome and New York."--BOOK JACKET
