A definitive biography

Robert Hughes, Time Magazine

A nearly flawless account of a remarkable artist . . . a compelling and accessible narrative for anyone even remotely interested in modern American art.

—Michael Kammen, The New York Times Book Review

Presented in collaboration with Fairfield University Art Museum, Art History Program, and the Visual and Performing Arts Department

The popularity of the American realist painter, Edward Hopper (1882-1967) has continued to grow. Professor Gail Levin has singlehandedly – and courageously - brought to the art world’s attention a series of unanswered questions about how the estate of Edward and Josephine Hopper was managed, directed, or even illicitly parceled off in the art market trade. What are the correct methods, practices, and standards needed to watchdog the artistic legacy of one of America’s most beloved artists?

Gail Levin is an art historian, biographer, curator, and artist at the City University of New York and one of the world’s foremost experts on the art of Edward Hopper.
