A coffee with Edward Hopper

 Nighthawks is a 1942 painting by American realist painter Edward Hopper that portrays people sitting in a downtown diner late at night. It is Hopper’s most famous work and is one of the most recognizable paintings in American Art. Within months of its completion, it was sold to the  Art Institute of Chicago for $3,000, and has remained there ever since. Paintings such as Nighthawks convey a mood of loneliness and desolation by their emptiness or by the presence of anonymous, non-communicating figures. Personally, this is our favorite painting ever.
