Edward Hopper

Tables for Ladies (detail), 1930. Edward Hopper, American 1882-1967 The Met, NYC

I couldn't resist including this image .... I have never seen this painting before, and I thought I'd seen most Hoppers since I have several books about him. What a pleasant surprise! (sorry it's a bit lopsided.)

'US painter and teacher, one of the foremost American Realists. His views of life in New England and New York in the 1930s and 1940s, painted in rich, dark colours, convey a brooding sense of emptiness and solitude, as in Nighthawks 1942 (Art Institute, Chicago). Hopper's teacher Robert Henri, associated with the Ashcan School, was a formative influence.' (Brockhampton)

"If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint it." - Edward Hopper.
