House by the Railroad - Edvard Hopper

Literally trapped between the old and the new era, this majestic and imposing House embodies a pre-industrial building that Edward Hopper would long claim, like all his paintings, to be factual and devoid of emotion, whereas the contemplation of this painting demonstrates all the depth that the work of art can hide.

Blue as the sky, this one tries to blend its form into the background, further accentuating the duality between nature and industry, conservatism and progressivism. The copper-coloured railway underlines this fracture of a mansion that rises into the sky while cementing itself into modernism.

Disturbing and fascinating, it will never cease to inspire the Masters of Cinema until it becomes an emblem of Hopper.

The artwork in a nutshell

Literally trapped between the old and the new era, this majestic and imposing House embodies a pre-industrial building that Edward Hopper would long claim, like all his paintings, to be factual and devoid of emotion, whereas the contemplation of this painting demonstrates all the depth that the work of art can hide.

Blue as the sky, this one tries to blend its form into the background, further accentuating the duality between nature and industry, conservatism and progressivism. The copper-coloured railway underlines this fracture of a mansion that rises into the sky while cementing itself into modernism.

Disturbing and fascinating, it will never cease to inspire the Masters of Cinema until it becomes an emblem of Hopper.

The artist

In his early years, Hopper was a student of Robert Henri, head of the Ashcan School. Convinced that artists should portray precarious conditions, he promoted a bold urban realism. Although this teaching ended in 1906, Hopper continued to follow it throughout his career. From then on, as a solitary giant, he would detach himself from all the new artistic movements taking place in the background and take refuge in French literature and practice by painting impressionist panoramic views. Thus, a nascent formation in urban realism was introduced, whose brushstrokes would paint an instinctive movement devoid of judgment and sentimentality. An inveterate portraitist of melancholy, human detachment becomes the subject of his entire creative process. He will never cease to convey the confrontation between the desolate urban world and the haunting rurality. This fusion created a world of solitude and anguish, making him the most important American Naturalist of the 20th century.
