Descripción del producto
'Hopper's paintings have become modern icons ... [Wells] has chosen an approach that is more musing than instructing, and in doing so he opens up our personal responses to Hopper's work. ... in these pages, as he defines and the refines his interpretations, I think Wells may have stumbled on why we keep coming back to these paintings. ... Hopper's implicit storylines, his narratives which engender tense, suspended silences, are what make his images so compelling. And so they stay with us.' Daily Telegraph
Reseña del editor
This 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.Ver Descripción del producto

Hopper's finest works reproduced on large pages matched with Mr.Wells' beautifully written analysis make this a MUST HAVE for any fan of American Art or Art in general.
Yes,the conclusions and analysis here are that of one man.However,never does Mr.Wells' opinions come across as arrogant nor does he attempt to have the "final say" on Hopper's work.He helps his case and credibility by citing countless preceding works/letters/critiques/etc.Wells assists us in seeing Hopper's work in new ways and in noticing subtle details we never saw the first time.
Archetypes,Sexuality,Dreams,and Freud are just some of the topics discussed here.Wells does a superb job of
relating these ideas to Hopper's work without taking embarrassing leaps or going on bizarre tangents.It's precise,honest and borderline revelatory.
Hopper is one of the finest artists in American history and this book is simply a tool to help us appreciate his work so much more.
