Automat by Edward Hopper

Oil on Canvas, 28 x 36 inches, 1927

I've always liked this painting by Edward Hopper. I would love to read a writer's interpretation of this scene. This painting makes me curious about the interior world of the character. Why is she sitting alone? Where was she before she sat down for a drink? Where will she be going after?

  2. Thank you for sharing that link. The article was very interesting. I never thought about the bowl of fruit being a central element.
