Edward Hopper Paints His World by Robert Burleigh

Edward Hopper’s paintings are iconic and are American through and through. Burleigh’s text brings to life Hopper’s life with particular focus on his youth. Hopper always knew he wanted to be a painter and through hard work and determination he became was he was meant to be. Asking an illustrator to mimic a famous painter is always tricky but Wendell Minor was an inspired choice. In the back matter he refers to how he handled that task. A great way to introduce a great painter to children.

Pub date: This book will be published in August.
