Edward Hopper in Wien

For a moment let’s forget that yesterday was the Austrian election. Everyone in Austria and, perhaps, the whole world are waiting what’s gonna be the possible outcome. The People’s Party has a new head in the name of Josef Pröll. The right-wingers are praying that they are gonna be in the new government.

I digress.

Automat by Edward Hopper

Automat by Edward Hopper, 1927

Do you know this painting? I bet you do. More than a decade ago I saw it on a page of a book. Then as a part of a film. It was from Cameron Crowe, “Singles,” which many people misconceived as his ode to Seattle and the music revolution that was grunge.

I searched and searched until I forgot that I was searching for the name of the painter and the title of the work.

Finally, and hopefully, this painting is included in the upcoming exhibition of works by Edward Hopper at the Kunsthalle Wien, Halle 1 in the 7th District starting on Oct. 3.
