Essay: Nighthawks by Edward HopperA brief essay focusing on Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks. With its carefully constructed composition and lack of narrative, this painting has a timeless quality that transcends its particular locale. One of the best-known images of 20th-century art, the painting depicts an all-night diner with four anonymous and uncommunicative night owls who seem as separate and remote from the viewer as they are from one another.
