Edward Hopper Paints His World
As a boy, Edward Hopper knew that he wanted to be a painter, and as a young man he traveled to New York and to Paris to hone his craft. He was fascinated with painting light and shadow and his works explore this challenge—notably Nighthawks and Early Sunday Morning—and even though no one wanted to buy his paintings for a long time, he never stopped believing in his dream to be an artist. A Daedalus favorite, Wendell Minor depicts Hopper's life and mid-20th-century world in rather sunny gouache watercolor images, while Robert Burleigh tells the story of this determined American artist for readers 5 to 8.
