Title: EDWARD HOPPER's Maine
Author: Salatino, Kevin
Price: Not Available
Description: New York-Munich: Prestel, in association with Bowdoin College Museum of Art. 2011. 28cm., hardcover, 176pp., prof. illus., most in color. Exhibition catalogue. Summary: This book presents Hopperís compelling images of Maine, including its signature lighthouses, towns, harbors, and coastlines, works that anticipate his mature style and ethos. Among these lyrical and masterful creations, with their carefully calculated compositions and cinematic use of light and shadow, are the plein-air paintings that Hopper created on tiny Monhegan Island off the Maine coast. This series of thirty-two oils is comparable to Monetís haystacks in its meditation on a single, everchanging subject. Hopperís magnificent lighthouse paintings are also freshly treated, as is his mysterious Maine in Fog, a significant painting heretofore considered unfinished. Many of the works in this stunning book, never or rarely exhibited, are brought together for the first time. This publication, with its insightful accompanying essays, represents an exciting new contribution to the appreciation of this major American artist.
