This is the mock-heroic view of Mr. Hopper's paintings, and is to a certain
extent true---but he was not simply a painter of loneliness, losers and lost
lives---he was an accomplished painter of all of the facets of the life of his
time--a witty, talented, intelligent man. My advice: look at the man's entire
body of work rather than the one or two pics that have made it onto neon
posters.

Best wishes,
Joseph
