Edward Hopper and the American Imagination

This catalogue of an exhibition of the same name at the Whitney Museum, 1995 includes fifty-nine of Hopper's most important works in full color as well as original works by fiction writers and poets that pay homage to, or make reference to, the ways in which Hopper pictured our world. Hopper's themes of alienation and loneliness, empty cityscapes and countrysides, the stark light of Cape Cod, silent hills and houses — all have been indelibly imprinted on our collective sense of ourselves and our country. This work celebrates the impact Hopper's imagery continues to have on contemporary culture and is dedicated to a fuller understanding of Hopper's place in the American mind.
