New York Movie

I chose the painting New York Movie by Edward Hopper.  It was painted in 1939.  The medium is oil on canvas.  The size is 32 1/4 by 40 1/8 inches.  It is located at the Museum of Modern Art.  Hopper does a good job showing perspective and dimension.  He uses the complimentary colors green and red in this painting.  I like how well he shows the lighting of the theater with highlights and shadows.  I also like how the painting tells as story.  It makes me question why the woman is leaning against the wall instead of watching the movie.
