Gas

  • Print Description
      Edward Hopper painted this hypnotic isolated gasoline station where the highway apparently ends, disappearing into the distance in 1940. The last patron seems to have passed long ago. Gas is set at dusk where day gives way to night, and civilisation gives way to nature. The gas station has the appearance of the last civilised outpost that Hopper has rendered using both natural and artificial light to give the scene of a gas station and its lone attendant an underlying sense of drama.  Gas exudes the quintessential American country gasoline pumps of the 1940's that Hopper has created with his balanced composition and intricate colour palette.  A captivating reproduction worthy of a special place in a contemporary or vintage inspired interior decor.

The Artist

EDWARD HOPPER

Edward Hopper (1882 - 1967) was a celebrated American realist painter and printmaker.  While he is widely known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching.

No other artist at the time, managed to capture the solitude within the modern city like Edward Hopper. The ‘artist of empty spaces’ offers a look at life of Americans during World War I. Hopper depicted the spirit of the time very subtly, showing it in the poses of characters, in the vast empty spaces around them and also in his harmonious colour palettes of the era.

Hopper's influence on the art world and pop culture is undeniable, most notably his most recognisable 'Nighthawks' painting being referred to in movies, television, music and literature, still to this day.
