  1. On Edward Hopper by Mark Strand | The New York Review of Books

    I particularly like the first half, on Hopper’s preparatory drawings. “It was not that he needed to be sure how to paint a sugar dispenser or salt shaker as in Nighthawks (1942), but that they should become his.”

    @stefpos Yeah I’m such a sucker. It’s like washing powder with a “New Improved Formula”. They never say how it’s better you just go with it.
