House at dusk

Edward Hopper was well known for his paintings of American buildings. Instead of being homely and busy, these pictures are filled with a sense of stillness and mystery.

  • How does this house make you feel? What do you think could be happening in some of the rooms?
  • Notice how the bottom of the house is cut off. How many levels could be below what you can see?
  • Extend and draw the rest of the house and it surroundings. Hint: if you’d like to print the image only, right-click on it and select save, then print it.
