Nighthawks – Edward Hopper

There’s a fun anecdote (most likely apocryphal) about an art critic interviewing Edward Hopper. The conversation inevitably veered to Nighthawks, and the critic pulled out a print of the work. The critic then asked Hopper, “Mr. Hopper, I’ve always been dying to ask you this: why does this diner have no door? Is it to show how we’re all trapped within the comfort of our own lives? Does it symbolize us being cut off from a past we yearn to remember? What does it *mean*, Mr. Hopper?”

At this point Hopper moved close to the picture and squinted. After a moment’s silence he leaned back and muttered “It means I forgot to paint the damn door.”
