Edward Hopper In Reverse

R0331305small“Drugstore Window”, one of Mr. Hopper’s most famous painting, is done at night looking from the outside it. This image is in daylight looking from the inside out. However, the sense of a significant distance between subject and the surrounding environment feel the same, at least to my way of thinking.

There’s something about a crowded, bustling city that seems to encourage people to wrap themselves in a cloak of private and somewhat defensive contemplation.
