ART GALLERY - Edward Hopper

Edward Hopper (1882-1967), the best-known American realist of the inter-war period and one of my favourits. Early Sunday Morning, 1930, Oil on canvas35 x 60 in.Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Hopper often cropped his paintings to look like they were captured by the lens of a movie camera. The scenes that he painted are not filled with lonliness but are simply about lonely people. What makes this a masterwork is not only the climate, the color, and the light, but the inspired solitude with which it is imbued.
