Edward Hopper (1882-1967) was a much-loved American realist painter famous for his intimate depictions of American life. Drawn to the melancholy of places on the thresholds of society, the artist's cinematic paintings of motels, service stations and roadside diners reflect his introspective character. In his work, these ordinary settings become mysterious, haunted by contemplative figures who represent the reality of everyday life. Photograph by Harris & Ewing, courtesy Library of Congress.

It was not a Hopper work I was familiar with and I was a bit anxious about the finished product. I need not have worried. The quality of the framing was excellent and fully justified the price. I had been racking my brains looking for an original gift and I was not let down. The recipient was delighted and so was the giver!
