From his images of deserted small towns and solitary figures in empty offices to his cheerfully tranquil New England landscapes, Hopper's most famous compositions can be seen as products of a life spent observing human nature. Hopper's images evoke an enigmatic uncertainty, which speaks to the heart of the American experience. Hopper's talent for depicting multiple aspects of the post-war experience is the focus of this generously illustrated and engaging volume.
