Edward Hopper

Girl at a Sewing Machine

An American artist for you today.  Edward Hopper (1882-1967).  Hopper was a realist painter who specialised in street and café scenes.  And later on also seascapes.

Lighthouse Hill

He sold his first painting in 1913 at the age of 31 – so he was no child prodigy.  And it was another 10 years or so before he really became noticed.

Happy Early Sunday Morning
Nighthawks is his most famous work but I have chosen some other works that I like better.
