Painted by Edward Hopper in 1942, Nighthawks officially hangs at the Art Institute Of Chicago (and unofficially hangs on my computer as my new desktop wallpaper).
I’ve always liked the image and find that, like other work by Hopper I’m seeing for the first time, I can’t quite describe why. It seems he had a thing about windows. People looking into them, people looking out of them, and people sitting near them. Not sure what that’s about, and not to sound like a simpleton, but it’s the colors that grab me.
Do a google image search on his work and you’ll see what I mean.
