Carter E. Foster carefully examines how Hopper used his drawings to develop his paintings, arguing that the artist's work can only be fully understood after in-depth study of these preparatory sketches. Foster also argues that Hopper was, in many ways, a traditional draftsman who methodically developed schematic ideas into detailed studies to refine content.

Examining the fruitful summers Hopper spent in Maine between 1914 and 1929, this unique and lavishly illustrated volume features over 100 paintings, watercolors, and drawings, a body of work that is astonishing in its beauty, range, consistency, and importance. This book presents Hopper’s 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 Monet’s haystacks in its meditation on a single, everchangingsubject. Hopper’s 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.

I've always been an admirer of Hopper's work but since I also live in Maine I was particularly interested in his Maine art works. I was not disappointed. This book has some lovely illustrations of his art in Maine and an interesting read about his time in Maine. It is a book I pick up often and browse through with relish.

Very useful

I haven't even read this yeyt, but the pictures make it a treasure already. I am an Edward Hopper fan.

This book shows the seascape side of Edgar Hopper. Within a painterly way, sometimes with strokes and colors that remember the grim painting of Soutine, this book brings us this side of his genius, something different from his more known painting. I'm very happy with my buying.

The quality of the reproductions are disappointing,

This is the first and only book, of which I am aware, to focus solely and comprehensively on Hopper's paintings of Maine. The book was created for a show at Bowdoin College Museum of Art. I was fortunate to be able to see the show and very glad that I purchased this book as well.

To me, the best part of the book and the show was the coverage of Hoppers early, small, low key, direct observation oil studies. The book and show contain the most complete collection of early Maine Hoppers that I have seen under one roof. The only exception as far as completeness goes is the Hopper catalogue Raisonne - though the photographic reproductions and text are far more gripping in this book than the catalogue Raisonne. The text is easy to read and informative, but as is common, there is virtually no discussion of Hopper's methods, materials, palette and so forth. This is particularly disappointing because most of these Maine pictures could be categorized as "painter's paintings" and I would think that many readers of this book would find that interesting. I know I would.

The actor and collector, Steve Martin's contribution to the book is a mere 2 page chapter. (That and lending his Hopper to the show and to grace the book's cover. Don't think this is necessarily some great act of generosity on his part - though it could be. The Museum likely covers the painting's insurance costs and any collector knows that showing a painting in such a show and book adds to a pictures history, boosts its gravitas, and ultimately its' value.) In it he discusses the "great painting", Captain Upton's House, which he owns(cover image). It is a frustrating painting, because despite its many virtues, it fails to convey a cohesive illusion of light or a cohesive sense of solidity, something that Mr. Martin either doesn't perceive or doesn't care about. Several of the smaller, earlier Hopper oils, and many other works in the book, are far more successful in this regard.

Thankfully this book gives the early, oil gems sufficient coverage. As far as I know, it is the first such book to do so. Each early oil study is reproduced on a full page in color. In a sense, they are the meat of this book. The images themselves are ever so slightly muddy, perhaps because the book is printed on a relatively matte paper and the subtle shifts in the dark shadows are difficult to reproduce. Overall, I would say that the quality of the book and the reproductions is quite high. I should mention that the three early Monhegan oils that are reproduced, larger than life, in the front end papers are phenomenal! You really get a good sense for how these paintings look up close. There are also the other works reproduced from the show, including several excellent watercolors, drawings and larger oils. Much of Hopper's later, more labored, studio work (not in this book/show) leaves me cold, though I fully realize that these large studio pictures are considered far more "important" to Hopper's oeuvre. I appreciate Hopper's large studio pictures for other reasons, but I cannot say that they use the medium of oil paint as effectively as the small early Maine oils. If his later story telling work appeals to you the most, I would look elsewhere. However, if you appreciate juicy, painterly works that powerfully convey light, atmosphere and form with bold and descriptive paint application, this book is the best Hopper book you will find.

This book catalogs a display at Bowdoin College's art museum, at the time of this writing. I had the pleasure of seeing that show recently, and was knocked flat. The show had only a few of Hopper's iconic oils, including a radiant lighthouse painting, since this show centered on Hopper's work in Maine. This included some watercolors, drawings, and oil studies. For me, though, the biggest treat of the show came in the first of the rooms dedicated to it: thirty small oil studies appeared, done between 1914 and 1919, most of them in their first-ever public appearance, and certainly for the first time as a set. These captivating small works show every sign of quick execution - not hasty, but given no more time than they were worth to Hopper at the moment. Nearly all of them show paint applied thickly, capturing the brush strokes and knife marks that created them. Far more than his finished works, these educated me about his palette and process. I was grateful to see them displayed. So, you can imagine me almost laughing when two older women moved out of that first hall and loudly announced, "The paintings in this room are much better."

No catalog can replace the experience of seeing the paintings in person. This book, however, reproduces all of those little treasures, along with all the other wonders of this display. Even if you can't see the show yourself, this book offers reproductions of paintings that, as far as I know, have never been anthologized before. I got this to freshen my memories of the show, but any Hopper aficionado will value its unique content.
