Hopper’s Nighthawks

The Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago’s Grant Park, founded in 1879, is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the United States. Before Covid, the museum would host approximately 1.5 million people annually. One of the paintings in the permanent collection is Nighthawks, a 1942 oil on canvas painting by Edward Hopper that portrays a few people in a downtown diner late at night as viewed through the diner’s large glass window. This video is from a lecturer at the Museum and offers great insights on a painting we know so well.
