Description
"Compartment C, Car 293" is a painting by the American artist Edward Hopper, made in 1938. This work depicts the interior of a train compartment, where a lone woman can be seen staring into a book.

Hopper often painted travel scenes, and "Compartment C, Car 293" is an example of his interest in human relationships and experiences of solitude in public spaces. He was inspired by the train trips he took with his wife, Josephine, who often posed for him as a model.

Light also plays an important role in this painting. The light coming in through the window gives the compartment an atmosphere of transparency and clarity, but at the same time it accentuates the loneliness of the figures. Hopper often used light to create a particular atmosphere in his works, and in "Compartment C, Car 293" it reinforces the idea of distance and unease between the characters.

This painting is considered one of Hopper's most important works because of its universal theme of loneliness and emotional distance in a public space.
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.
