Edward Hopper: A Fresh Look on Landscape

Edited with text by Ulf Küster. Text by Erika Doss, David Lubin, Katharina Rüppell.

"Wellfleet Road" (1931) is reproduced from 'Edward Hopper: A Fresh Look on Landscape.'

A fresh look at Hopper’s iconic vision of the American landscape—its gas stations, diners and highways

Edward Hopper’s world-famous, instantly recognizable paintings articulate an idiosyncratic view of modern life, unfolding in a world of lonely lighthouses, gas stations, movie theaters, bars and hotel rooms. With his impressive subjects, independent pictorial vocabulary and virtuoso play of colors, Hopper’s work continues to this day to color our memory and imaginary of the United States in the first half of the 20th century.

Hopper began his career as an illustrator and became famous around the globe for his oil paintings. These paintings testify to the artist’s great interest in the effects of color and his mastery in depicting light and shadow, at work whether the artist was painting alienated figures in dreamlike interiors or desolate American landscapes.

Edward Hopper: A Fresh Look on Landscape is published to accompany a major exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler of Hopper’s iconic images of the vast American landscape. The catalog gathers together paintings, watercolors and drawings made by the artist between the 1910s and the 1960s, and supplements them with essays by Erika Doss, David Lubin and Katharina Rüppell, focused on the subject of depicting the landscape.

Edward Hopper (1882–1967) was the master of American Realism. His paintings captured the mood and atmosphere of his era. His style of painting and subject matter became the stylistic foundation for a distinct type of American modernism. A source of inspiration for countless painters, photographers and filmmakers, Hopper’s body of work continues to be influential to this day.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Art and Object

Lauren Ford

Hopper rejected the formulas and rules that governed landscape painting before his time. While the Hudson River School and its European predecessors saw land as a well-composed, static entity, Hopper’s landscapes suggest that not everything has been neatly captured in view. “Landscape is an image of nature that doesn’t change, but nature is changing,” the exhibition’s curator Ulf Küster recently said, mentioning the Australian bushfires and the threat of climate change. “Hopper makes changing nature visible. He shows landscape as part of something bigger, something that is perhaps beyond our control.”

Art Newspaper

David Anfam

Casting a caustic eye on modernity and a watchful one upon nature, Hopper ranks among the most haunting of the last Romantics.

New Yorker

Peter Schjeldahl

The visual bard of American solitude—not loneliness, a maudlin projection—speaks to our isolated states these days with fortuitous poignance. [...] I haven’t seen “Edward Hopper: A Fresh Look at Landscape,” a large show at the lately reopened Beyeler Foundation... I take its fine catalogue, edited by the exhibition’s curator, Ulf Küster, as occasion enough for reflecting anew on the artist’s stubborn force.

The Experience and sensation of isolation in 'Edward Hopper: A Fresh Look on Landscape'

The Experience and sensation of isolation in 'Edward Hopper: A Fresh Look on Landscape'

"To me, form, color and design are merely a means to an end, the tools I work with, and they do not interest me greatly for their own sake," Edward Hopper wrote in 1939. "I am interested primarily in the vast field of experience and sensation… One must say guardedly, human experience, for the fear of having it confounded with superficial anecdote. I am always repelled by painting that deals narrowly with harmonies or dissonances of color and design. My aim in painting is always using nature as the medium, to try to project upon canvas my most intimate reaction to the subject as it appears when I like it most; when the facts are given unity by my interest and prejudices." Route 6, Eastham (1941) is reproduced from Edward Hopper: A Fresh Look on Landscape. continue to blog

Social distancing in the landscapes of Edward Hopper

Social distancing in the landscapes of Edward Hopper

"Cape Cod Morning" (1950) is reproduced from Edward Hopper: A New Perspective on Landscape, the beautifully produced new release from Hatje Cantz and Fondation Beyeler, and a fitting book for this time of unusual social distancing and global isolation. "Hopper's silence was famous; recalcitrance was his method," Ulf Küster writes. "Throughout his life, Hopper, who took German in school, carried around a piece of paper with a quotation from a letter by Johan Wolfgang von Goethe to Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi. Aside from indicating his profound knowledge of Goethe's works, it also documents his subjective approach to art… 'See, dear friend, what is the beginning and end of all writing, the reproduction of the world around me, through the inner world in which everything is held, bound up, remade, kneaded, and in peculiar form and manner again set forth; which remains eternally secret, God be thanked, and neither will I reveal it to gapers and chatterers.'" continue to blog
