"A Day at the Office"

9 x 12"

The Montgomery Museum of Art in Alabama, make no mistake, has treasured works of art.  My personal favorite is the striking New York Office by the great Edward Hopper.

Hopper painted this masterpiece at the age of 80, four years short of his death.  The painting is quintessential Hopper - an urban scene, a lone figure and a business office with the viewer or voyeur essentially unnoticed by the woman at her desk in the window.  Hopper featured women working in offices frequently, perhaps showing his admiration for who really runs the show.
