EDWARD HOPPER: Painter of Light and Shadow

VIEWS: 19 PAGES: 1

Edward Hopper's Nighthawks (1942) is a work many think of as one of America's finest paintings. Based partly on an all-night coffee shop on Greenwich Avenue in New York City, the painting has come to represent loneliness in a large city. There is a poetic quality about the four figures depicted in a shadowy, lonely setting. We can imagine many personal stories in the minds of the seated figures. Indeed, we can come to see the quiet quality in so many of Hopper's works.
