Edward Hopper was a painter who coped to capture the mood of the epoch, depicting various scenes, from typical American households to powerful and moody landscapes. The author's personal vision, mixed with extremely lifelike depictions, became the essence of Hopper's inimitable style and a kind of secret he would gladly share with us.

I love his work. Nighthawks is my favorite. Alone and loneliness seems to be his themes.

Nighthawks is definitely iconic. Surely I am not the only one to notice ''The Little Engine That Could '' in #7.

i liked them all, but my favorite is the girl at the sawing machine, as it reminds me of my dear Mother, as she used to use the machine a lot,

I really like his style. He expresses the feeling solitude in otherwise public places. We've all been in these places before.

Great paintings, but not as haunting and introspective as Andrew Wyeth.
