Silence, emptiness, alienation are primary themes of American painter Edward Hopper's (1882-1967) works.

This painting "Summertime(1943)", as a whole projects the vast emptiness of modern urban existence. 



It's a sweltering day in New York City. A young girl in clingy, see-through white dress and no pupils is shown all alone, staring out on a empty street with the backdrop of impersonal city building

Along with depicting loneliness and isolation of modern American life, Hopper's paintings also shows another facet of modern city life - the opportunity to watch complete strangers without being seen by them Smile

Dear Betty,

Lovely paintings, thanks for introducing me to them. You know what impressed me the most, the shadows - I am no great painter (my skills are limited to painting rangolis and lamps for DiwaliLOL) but then I think that getting the shadows right is very difficult, especially the light angles and the shades. They are simply brilliant in the above paintings.

Best,
Nyna

My pleasure Nynaeve and thank you.


You're right, shadows are tough...

(For some reason my fav. Hopper painting is "Summertime" Smile)

Since you mentioned the difficulty of depicting shadows, esp light angles and shades, I am posting one of his Etchings, "Night Shaodows(1921)"


This etching and many of his paintings look like a movie still, a scene from a film noir, he may have influenced the development of film noir 

His works have made a mark on pop culture, has inspired literature, movies, music etc Star
