Edward Hopper

Chop Suey (1929) Edward Hopper was an American artist in the 1920s. Two common characteristics in his work show facets of American life, such as gas stations and theaters, and seascapes and rural landscapes. Because feminism was strong in the 1920s, many of his solitary figures are women.


Automat (1927). This painting as often been associated with the concept of urban alienation. One critic has observed that, in a pose typical of Hopper's melancholic subjects, "the woman's eyes are downcast and her thoughts turned inward." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automat_(painting))

art deco
Art Deco
  • Was an eclecticartistic and design style that began in Paris in the 1920s and flourished internationally throughout the 1930s and into the World War II era. The style influenced all areas of design, including architecture and interior design, industrial design, fashion and jewelry, as well as the visual arts such as painting, graphic arts and film.
  • The term "art deco" was coined in 1966, after an exhibition in Paris, 'Les Années 25' sub-titled Art Deco, celebrating the 1925.
  • At its best, art deco represented elegance, glamour, functionality and modernity.
