"Hotel Room" is a painting by American artist Edward Hopper, created in 1931. This work represents an empty hotel room, with an open window letting in daylight. We can see an unmade bed, a chair and a night table, as well as a mirror on the wall. The floor is covered with white and black tiles and the overall atmosphere is that of a banal, anonymous hotel room.
Hopper often painted urban scenes and commercial buildings, and "Hotel Room" is an example of his interest in empty, lonely spaces. See more
He was inspired by his travels in the 1920s and 1930s, where he was struck by the anonymity and solitude of hotels. He was also influenced by the writings of William Dean Howells, who described hotels as places of solitude and isolation.
Light also plays an important role in this painting. The daylight coming in through the window gives the room an atmosphere of transparency and clarity, but at the same time it emphasizes the loneliness of the empty space. Hopper often used light to create a particular atmosphere in his works, and in "Hotel Room" it reinforces the idea of solitude and isolation. This painting is considered one of Hopper's most important works because of its universal theme of loneliness and isolation in a public space. He was able to capture the essence of modern life in a poignant way and provoke thoughts about human nature and the relationship between individuals and the space around them.
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. See more
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.
