Room In Brooklyn

"Room in Brooklyn" was painted by Edward Hopper in 1932 on oil on canvas. The painting hangs in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. I chose this painting because I really enjoy Edward Hooper's paintings. I think the composition of his work is very intriguing. I like how a lot of his paintings make the viewer feel as if they are peering in on a scene on normal American life. I like how he painted images from a side view and includes people with their backs to the viewer. I think this type of composition makes the viewer feel as if the scene is actually occurring in front of them.
