Edward Hopper is mostly known for his oil paintings... but he also did a great job with watercolours  (like  "The Mansard Roof", 1923, his first  break ) and etching (like his "East Side", 1922 )

This clip shows a great deal of his paintings -Benny Goodman's jazz plays  :

I do like the way the artist shows scenes suggesting ordinary lives and places... his painting shadows and light.

An exhibition on Edward Hopper(1) currently takes place in Switzerland (Lausanne) until October 17  :  I'll surely tell you more about the American painter and his artwork ;-)   


(1) Thanks indeed to Ms M. Milesi, an onlist colleague, for reminding me of the event !
