'ALL THE LONELY PEOPLE': THE WORK OF EDWARD HOPPER

'ALL THE LONELY PEOPLE': THE WORK OF EDWARD HOPPER

19th January 2021

11.30 a.m.

Speaker: Stella Grace Lyons

Hopper painted solitary figures in American offices, motel rooms and diners, and deserted towns. Stella Grace Lyons will talk about ‘Nighthawks’ and some of Hopper’s other works. Visually stunning, Hopper’s works are characterised by striking colours, cinematic and cropped compositions which heighten tension.

Flooded with light, his paintings expose detached figures and create a mood of eerie uneasiness.

Stella Grace Lyons is a freelance Art History lecturer, speaker and writer who runs her own art history courses and is also much in demand as a regular lecturer in the UK and Europe
