Edward Hopper

The other day a book arrived it was on the works of Edward Hopper. My brother had sent it as a birthday present.

I have always liked the works of Hopper. Albeit that I can only relate to his subjects (American life) through the films of my youth such as Bad Day at Black Rock.  Probably his most famous work is shown above the Nighthawks.

There is I find a sadness in his work the paintings feel empty and have a sense of loneliness about them. I don't know a great deal about his life but I know he was late coming to success and maybe that is reflected in his work.

 I will have a good read of the book and hopefully this will enlighten me.
