Art History Lectures: Edward Hopper
â€˜All the Lonely Peopleâ€™: The work of American Realist Edward Hopper
Presented by Stella Grace Lyons
Hopper was a painter of loneliness and melancholy; from solitary figures in offices, motel rooms and diners, to deserted towns. He portrayed a changing America and the isolation of the individual in the modern city. His works are visually stunning; characterised by striking colours, cinematic and cropped compositions which heighten tension. Flooded with light, his paintings expose detached figures and create a mood of eerie uneasiness. This talk considers some of his most arresting works, including â€˜The Nighthawksâ€™, â€˜Gasâ€™ and â€˜Automatâ€™.
