This book presents Hopper's compelling images of Maine, including its signature lighthouses, towns, harbours, 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, ever changing subject. 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.
