Acclaimed poet Mark Strand deftly illuminates the work of the American painter Edward Hopper, whose enigmatic paintings—of gas stations, storefronts, cafeterias, and hotel rooms—number among the best-known of teh 20th century. In brief but compelling comments accompanying each painting, the elegant expressiveness of Strand’s language is put to the service of Hopper’s visual world. Strand shows us how the formal elements of the paintings—geometrical shapes pointing beyond the canvas, light from unseen sources—locate the viewer, as he says, “in a virtual space where the influence and availability of feeling predominate.” An unforgettable combination of prose and painting, this book is a must for poetry and art lovers alike.

Edward Hopper is a Whitney Collection artist with 3,156 pieces in the Collection.
