Edward Hopper

We snuck in to see the Edward Hopper exhibition at the National Gallery of Art today. Remembering that I don't know nuthin' 'bout no art, here's a couple of thoughts:

1. The guy was mildly pervy. Check out that Summertime pic. Wow!

2. It ain't just Nighthawks that leaves you wondering about the
people he depicts. Most of his stuff has some mystery to it.

3. He lived in the same apartment in Greenwich Village from 1913 until his death in 1967. I hope it was rent controlled.

All in all a cool guy and a great artist!
