Catalogue Note

Born in 1882, Edward Hopper was a well-known 20th century realist artist. In 1900, he attended New York School of Art and Design and after graduation he began trips to Europe which had a great influence on his works. In the present lot, a solitary figure walks down an empty city street in this dramatic composition viewed from above. Etching, a technique in which a composition is incised into a metal plate and then printed in ink on paper, was particularly suited to Hopper's style, allowing him to use strong, clean lines and cross-hatching to enhance the mystery of his chosen subject—here, the empty city at night.
