Born in New York in 1882, Edward Hopper was a prominent realist painter. Gas stations, motels, restaurants and theatres form the backdrops of his paintings. Figures occupy the foreground and suggest solitude. The most realist of realist painters, Hopper's cinematic depictions are his personal vision of modern American life.
This is one of Edward Hopper's iconic works ,on a par I think with the perhaps better known Night Hawks. The sense of isolation , almost other worldly ambiance is palpable. With a few simple strokes Sunday's familiar drop in tempo is perfectly captured. The print is everything you'd hope for, excellent quality.
