    Cover of "Edward Hopper in Vermont" by Bonnie Tocher Clause.

Often overlooked in light of his contemplative urban scenes and bold architectural and Cape Cod views, the 1930s Vermont landscapes painted by American artist Edward Hopper represent a significant segment of his regional work, infused with a distinctive sense of place.

A new book by independent scholar Bonnie Tocher Clause delves deep into Hopper's experience in the Green Mountain State with his wife, Jo, who was also an artist.

Clause tells the story of the Hoppers’ getaways to Vermont where they stayed on the Slater farm in South Royalton, enjoying farm life and painting en plein air.

The author's research led her to find the sites depicted in Hopper's Vermont paintings. "Edward Hopper in Vermont" also reveals two watercolors not previously recognized as Vermont scenes and details the development of Hopper’s singular style.

Some two dozen paintings and watercolors identified as Vermont scenes are shown in full color in this engaging look at Hopper's artistic sojourns in his beloved White River Valley.
