IIRC in one of the early Bosch books, his wife?,or they when they were together, bought that picture and it was something he cherished.

I just noticed TCM is airing Terrence Malick's Days of Heaven (mentioned on the first page of this thread) at 4:00 AM Eastern. If you've not seen it, it's worth a look. The story, I can take or leave, but it's eye candy for sure.

Yesterday that was the Final Jeopardy answer! Category was 20th century artists, answer was "The wife of the artist described this painting as a cheap diner."

What a HACK!! That's nauseating.



Many years ago, heard an interview with Lauren Bacall re: Bogey …
“He always considered himself a 19th century man.“

It was a reference to morality and accountability that he felt was missing in the 20th century.

Thank you for posting Para. Very interesting. I'd seen this in my feed, but dodged it for some reason. I'll be subscribing to that channel.

Yep that painting 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' based on Hopper's reminds me of the one of the dogs playing poker...

Sorry … That immediately came to mind. Wink

Thank you, Para, not just for this particular study, but for introducing me to the series from which it originated. Smile

Para, your interest in this Edward Hopper painting shows you have superb taste in art, as well as a very keen eye for nuance and detail. If you can find it on eBay or in used book stores (Powells Books in Chicago or Portland), the catalog from the 1988 Edward Hopper retrospective exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago is really amazing. I remember this show because - interestingly enough - it was his seascapes that were most compelling. Boiling, churning, explosive waves in powerful mixtures of color - quite different from the feel of his more well known understated iconic works like "Nighthawks".

I'm an ardent admirer of the man's work, and have several books on it and him. His sense of story and suggestion is every bit acute as his mesmerizing sense of light play...great stuff.
