movie and theater conventionsBrian O DohertyI was thrilled to be taking an Art History class at the same time there was an Edward Hopper exhibit at Boston s Museum of Fine Arts The museum was extremely crowded that day and I was with my classmates and instructor on a field trip that was not focused on any one artist, so it was difficult for me to truly contemplate his work Unfortunately, the exhibit was over the same by the time I was able to make a solitary trip there.So I was happy to find this book at the library to revisit the works I saw in Boston and discover his lesser known paintings and etchings.I love the vivid and unsentimental portrayals of American urban and rural life, the serious and melancholy mood of his characters, and their environmentMaybe I am not very human What I wanted to do was to paint sunlight on the side of a houseEdward HopperRenner thoughtfully analyzed the artist s style, techniques and influences At the end is a brief biography of the artist I wish the book was a little larger, so I could fully appreciate Hopper s magnificent works, but I also liked the smaller size that made it easy to carry around and snatch reading time throughout the day Aus aktuellem Anlass, n mlich der Hopper Ausstellung in der Fondation Beyeler, diente mir dieses Buch als Einstieg in die Welt des amerikanischen Malers Nat rlich kennt man gewisse Bilder der

eindeutig mehr als das Besprochene after a while i skimmed through a lot of the analysis and focusedon the paintings i love hopper s use of lighting and the atmosphere he has in a lot of his work I

for an excellent coffee table book, something to flip through almost meditatively.The analysis by Dr Renner was a bit less ideal Although it provided great insights as to the continuity of Hopper s works throughout his years, as well as the different ways that it related to Modernism and the psychological effects of his times, the analysis seemed almost fixated on Fruedian psychology Perhaps it is just a bit too passe or easy to comment on the usage of light, loneliness, and color, but the strong emphasis on longing, desire, and sexual tension was not especially appealing It did give me a different view of Hopper s paintings, and as the book brings together his works from various collections from New York, New Haven, Chicago, and Iowa, it was an excellent retrospective of the major pieces of art that Hopper created Il testo un po noioso, in alcune parti inutilmente ricercato Ma d altronde, chi se ne frega del testo se si possono guardare i quadri di Hopper Edward Hopper queda bien definido como el pintor realista que busca descifrar la l nea que separa la civilizaci n y la naturaleza En la mayor a de sus cuadros, tanto los iniciales m s paisaj sticos como sus ltimos cuadros habitados, Hopper incluye elementos de una naturaleza cada vez m s amenazada por la modernidad pero que sigue representando la salvaci n del hombre en cuanto a la tranquilidad y seguridad que le reportan La civilizaci n aparece como bloques de cemento en forma de tiendas, ca Edward Hopper queda bien definido como el pintor realista que busca descifrar la l nea que separa la civilizaci n y

pero que sigue representando la salvaci n del hombre en cuanto a la tranquilidad y seguridad que le reportan La civilizaci n aparece como bloques de cemento en forma de tiendas, casas, restaurantes, que encierran a las personas y les a slan de su verdadera identidad Por eso los personajes muchas veces est n fuera de la escena, en una actitud casi pasiva que no es otra sino la de una verdadera reflexi n sobre el lugar del hombre en el mundo moderno Hopper habla tambi n de una soledad que asfixia, predominante en todo momento en sus cuadros.El presente volumen de Taschen recopila la mayor a de sus obras, pero hace un an lisis muy superficial de todas ellas, incuso lejos de la personalidad del propio Hopper que pasa desapercibida al lector Una pena para los fan ticos de este pintor como yo, que vemos una buena galer a pero quer amos saber m s de su interpretaci n None Very good Good analysis of the works through the decades Good plates of the paintings Nice layout and text. The greatest strength of this book is the collection of paintings The author, Rolf Renner, offers his views on the key paintings and tries to link several of them together using different themes He is most effective when exploring the relationship between a Civilization and Nature in many of Hopper s paintings He is less clear when trying to place Hopper s work in the broader course of Art History, and his comparisons to other artists needs to be developed indetail But how can you go w The greatest strength of this book is the collection of paintings The author, Rolf Renner, offers his views on the key paintings and tries to link several of them together using different themes He is most effective when exploring the relationship between a Civilization and Nature in many of Hopper s paintings He is less clear when trying to place Hopper s work in the broader course of Art History, and his comparisons to other artists needs to be developed indetail But how can you go wrong with an art book that features details from Nighthawks on its cover I purchased this book in hardcover a number of years ago and it is now on my coffee table The story is quite interesting and the pictures are a good example of the Hudson River painters His former home is in Nyack, NY on the Hudson River.
