Still Looking: Essays on American Art
John Updike
1400044189
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Bookmarks Magazine
Published primarily in the New York Review of Books, the collected essays in Still Looking are less art criticism than finely honed art appreciations. Reviewers note Updike’s inquisitive tone and earnest interest in his subject matter. The often honored (an American Book Award, an O. Henry Prize, a National Medal for the Humanities) and prolific author once aspired for a career in cartooning and studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford, England. The major complaint, if it can be registered as such, is that Updike is so effective at bringing these works to life that the book, though amply illustrated, provokes frustration that the exhibitions are no longer running.Copyright © 2004 Phillips & Nelson Media, Inc.

Delete All Suspects (Turing Hopper Series #4)

From Publishers Weekly
In the quirky, engrossing fourth "techno-cozy" from Agatha Award–winner Andrews (after 2004's Access Denied), Alexandria, Va., PI Tim Pincoski and his buddy, Turing—an Artificial Intelligence Personality—are hired by Eunice Stallman, whose 22-year-old grandson, Eddie, has landed in the hospital after a hit-and-run. Mrs. Stallman wants Tim and Turing to investigate not the accident (which may have been not so accidental) but her grandson's computer company. The mysteries quickly multiply: is innocent-looking granny really who she claims to be? Was Eddie responsible for a phishing scheme that bilked innocent e-mailers out of thousands of dollars? This novel lacks the local color and charming cast of Andrews's popular Meg Lanslow series (Owls Well That Ends Well, etc.), but it's full of surprising...


Art and the Crisis of Marriage
Vivien Green Fryd
0226266540
June 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Between the two world wars, middle-class America experienced a "marriage crisis" that filled the pages of the popular press. Divorce rates were rising, birthrates falling, and women were entering the increasingly industrialized and urbanized workforce in larger numbers than ever before, while Victorian morals and manners began to break down in the wake of the first sexual revolution.

Vivien Green Fryd argues that this crisis played a crucial role in the lives and works of two of America's most familiar and beloved artists, Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) and Edward Hopper (1882-1967). Combining biographical study of their marriages with formal and iconographical analysis of their works, Fryd shows how both artists expressed the pleasures and perils of their relationships in their paintings. Hopper's many...

(Paperback) - Revised Ed.

From Publishers Weekly
Poet Strand intuitively captures the spirit of American realist Edward Hopper's (1882-1967) paintings in this latest entry in Ecco's Writers on Art series. Hopper's people, he writes, whether glimpsed in hotel rooms, diners, storefronts or gas stations, "seem to have nothing to do. They are like characters whose parts have deserted them and now, trapped in the space of their waiting, must keep themselves company with no clear place to go, no future." In his spare, precise commentaries on two dozen paintings, which are reproduced here in black-and-white, Strand peels away layers of poetic meaning and symbolism to pierce the private dramas implicit in Hopper's lonely, brooding canvases. Strand calls Sun in an Empty Room (1963) "a vision of the world without us; not merely a place that excludes us, but a place...

Book Review
"Eerie silence, desolate houses, and blank-eyed individuals with frozen faces, stunned and fixed in time. Cold sunlight from some mysterious, otherworldly source. Unmoving bodies drained of passion and lonely people staring nowhere," writes author Justin Spring on the first page of this pocket-sized guide to one of America's favorite realist painters. "Welcome to Hopper's world."

Hopper's landscapes and interiors have affected everyone from noir film directors to the abstract expressionists. His paintings conveying the loneliness of contemporary life were painfully apt in the 1930s during the Great Depression--and they are still meaningful today. This book, one of the Essentials series of art books that offer the reader a quick and easy grounding in the work of a single artist, is also a surprisingly deep work thanks to...

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Can You Find It Inside : Search and Discover for Young Art Lovers

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K–Two-line rhymes present clues to help young readers find details in paintings from the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Each painting, or portion of it, is matched with three couplets. Some flow smoothly, but others are a bit forced. The text accompanying Johannes Vermeer's Woman with a Lute reads, Look around and be astute./Can you find a tuneful lute?/It's so easy–it's a snap!/Look above and find a map./Look way down, now just explore./Find the squares upon the floor. Readers search Andree Ruellan's Market Place with this clue: Can you find him and reveal/a little boy and his pinwheel? The paintings, by well-known artists from a variety of periods, styles, and countries, fill the pages opposite the text. The quality of the artwork varies; several reproductions are very...

Book Description
The first major work on the exquisite watercolors of America's foremost and most popular realist painter. Edward Hopper has been celebrated for over half a century as America's most eloquent realist artist. His best known oils, such as Nighthawks, Early Sunday Morning, and House by a Railroad, are powerful psychological statements that convey a sense of angst and alienation. Yet there is another Hopper we know less well: the freer, more spontaneous spirit that emerges in his watercolors. In 1923 he spent a summer in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and began painting houses, landscapes, and fishing boats. In them he captures remnants of nineteenth-century America that for him symbolized the fundamental character of the country's people and places, and prompted him to reexamine his views about the relationship between the...

The Watercolors of Edward Hopper

Nov 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The complete watercolors of arguably America's best and probably America's most "American" artist. This magnificent volume reproduces all of Hopper's 357 watercolor paintings. They were first published in the four-volume catalogue raisonne of the artist's works. Now they are offered at a price that will make them attractive to anyone seriously interested in art. Hopper was comfortable in both oil and watercolor, although his technique with each medium varied considerably. While oils were done in the studio, often from detailed sketches with notations on colors, the watercolors were painted on location and seem far more spontaneous. In the years since Hopper's death in 1967, many of his paintings have achieved iconographic status as statements about this country. His empty cityscapes and countrysides speak of our sense...

Book Description
Edward Hopper (1882-1967) is generally considered the major twentieth-century realist. Such paintings as House by the Railroad, Early Sunday Morning, and Nighthawks seem to embody the loneliness of the individual in the cities and open spaces of America. Hopper strongly influenced contemporary American art, and there are countless photographs and films inspired by his work. The forty paintings in this volume give a representative overview of Hopper's art.
