Description
The lonely woman

The most obvious image in Edward Hopper's Automat is that of the lonely woman sitting in an automatic restaurant. Through the window behind her, the viewer sees the pure, dark night. The creative use of oil paint gives a reflective light that helps to reinforce the sense of loneliness. As in other Hopper paintings, there are no visible doors. The woman seems trapped in her own despair.

The use of geometry and light

Hopper's Automaton uses light and shadow to draw the viewer's eye to the many symbols in his work. The dark corner and shadows under the table emphasize the sense of sadness that the woman evokes. In addition, the woman's whitewashed skin and emotionless face seem to draw the viewer in. Her use of geometry creates strong images without being flashy. The bright colors and rigid shapes, such as the huge black rectangular window that shows only iridescent lights, depict a beautiful architectural form. The overly white cup and saucer are also used to draw attention to the lonely woman.

Edward Hopper uses his signature style to convey the many contradictions that occurred in the 1920s. The depiction of a lone woman, the bright colors and geometric structure create a profound visual image.
About Edward Hopper
Edward Hopper is one of the major figures of the American realist movement, with paintings such as House by the Railroad (1925) and Nighthawks (1942).

Born in 1882 in New York State, Edward Hopper entered the prestigious New York School of Art after his secondary education. He moved to New York in 1908 where he was hired as an illustrator for advertising campaigns. He soon tired of the job and exhibited paintings in his spare time.
Around 1915, he painted scenes of American life and in 1920, he presented his first exhibition at the Whitney Studio Club, which was a great success. In 1924 he married Josephine Verstille Nivison.

His particular style, made of simple forms and rather dark colours, plays on the contrasts between light and shadow. Hopper managed to diversify his realistic approach, with staged landscapes, sometimes urban and sometimes rural. The characters he paints often inspire an impression of solitude and exclusion. Most of his oil paintings reflect a country in the throes of economic and social change. In 1945, Edward Hopper was admitted to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He received numerous awards and honours, including the title of Doctor of Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1955.
