about

In the acclaimed first edition of Hopper's Places, Gail Levin paired paintings by Edward Hopper with her photographs of the subjects of paintings done in New York and environs, Maine, Gloucester, and Cape Cod to demonstrate how Hopper made art of everyday scenes and how he sometimes made intentional changes from what he observed. For this new edition, Levin has added documentary photographs and Hopper's paintings of sites in Paris, where he painted for several years as a young man, Charleston, Mexico, and the western U.S. to give a broader view of the range of his work and the power with which he transformed his subjects while still remaining faithful to their essential features.
Gail Levin is Professor of Art History at the City University of New York. Among her books are Edward Hopper: An Intimate Biography (1996, available in paperback from California) Edward Hopper: A Catalogue Raisonné (1995), and Marsden Hartley in Bavaria (1989).

Editorial Reviews

"This comparative view illustrates Hopper's compositional approach, his use of cropping, his exaggeration of the vertical or horizontal elements, and his simplifications, which Levin details. . . . The photographs themselves, taken in most cases several decades after the paintings were made, are equally illustrative of America's changing landscape."--"Library Journal
