Description
Edward Hopper painted Morning Sun in 1952. The painting depicts a woman sitting alone on an unmade bed.
She is wearing a simple pink dress that reveals her bare arms and thighs. It is widely believed that the woman in the painting was modeled after Hopper's wife, Jo.

She faces the window, which lets a flood of light into the room. The woman sits, almost impassive, watching the scene before her, almost lost in thought and contemplation.

Hopper has chosen to paint the room in fairly simple colors that seem dull and lifeless. The viewer can see a small detail of the street below, which further reinforces the stillness and loneliness felt within the four walls of the room.

The woman is perceived as being alone, even though she is in the middle of a busy city.

The issue of women and social isolation is a recurring theme in Hopper's paintings, as evidenced by the difference between the outer and inner worlds of his paintings. In Morning Sun, the two worlds come together through the window, with the sunlight creating a link between the two worlds.
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.
