Hopper Drawings at the Whitney: the poetics of commonplace subjects and daily experience‏

Hopper Drawings at the Whitney

"Hopper is simply a bad painter, but if he were a better one, 
he would probably not be such a great artist".

Clement Greenberg

Certainly, Hopper paintings are not perfect -perspective, proportion, etc.-. 
Yet, they are marvellous and its contemplation produces rare aesthetic and spiritual 

There's something meditative, simple, clean, pure! 

How the sun in an empty room can be so beautiful, deep and poetic! 

Edward Hopper turns daily life and moments into some mystical experience.
