    DescriptionThis monograph illuminates the life and work of one of America's most celebrated yet enigmatic artists. Through a close study of the themes, emotions and imagery that preoccupied Hopper (1882 - 1967) throughout his life, Walter Wells presents many new insights, especially into the haunting silence and loneliness at the heart of the artist's vision. In particular, Silent Theater explores the psychological tensions underlying the world of Hopper and his wife, Josephine Nivison. Using literature and other sources, the author reveals how Hopper created complex pictorial dramas about the human condition. The book's expansive design allows the superb reproductions of Hopper's paintings, watercolours and etchings--including his most memorable images that have indeed become American icons-- to register with an impact that matches the eloquence of its text.
