Art Institute of Chicago

“Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world.”
Edward Hopper

Why we love it

This is one of the best known images of 20th century American art, where the author, although he has denied that in his work in general he has tried to reflect human isolation or urban emptiness, he has recognized that Nighthawks reflects the loneliness of a big city, becoming one of the icons of 20th century art and American culture.

This is just our small contribution, your curiosity can do the rest.
