Edward Hopper Hotel Lobby

This is a painting done by Edward Hopper in 1943.  It is titled Hotel Lobby and is an oil on canvas.  The light of this painting exemplifies the unsettling mood of this painting.  This painting depicts a young woman in the corner reading and minding her own business.  Then there are two older people across from her, maybe a couple.  The couple looks alienated and the man looks ready to leave but the women does not.  What I found interesting is that there is a clerk barely visible watching them.  This painting is held in the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
