Walking down a darkened street it’s hard to resist looking in through lighted windows and catching a glimpse of other people’s lives. The imagination lingers…
Night Windows is the title of a painting by Edward Hopper of a scene in one such lighted window. However the scenes in this work – though reflecting something of the loneliness in so many of the Hopper paintings – are all imaginary: highly charged emotional moments.
Loneliness: Anger: Nostalgia: Despair: Frenzy
This work was commissioned by the International Double Reed Society and it is dedicated to Nicholas Daniel.
