Edward Hopper, infamous for his paintings to stimulate the mind. "Hopper derived his subject matter from two primary sources: one, the common features of American life (gas stations, motels, restaurants, theaters, railroads, and street scenes) and its inhabitants; and two, seascapes and rural landscapes." I like this painting because it can be interpreted in various ways. Also, the painting is obviously from the 50-60s by the clothing. The use of ciaroscuro in this painting also helps create drama.
