  1. Kitty, I for one am very happy with your selection for the latest “Pictorial Palette.” Like most, I’m familiar with Hopper’s “Nighthawks” and “Automat,” but I hadn’t seen “New York Movie” before. Hopper’s paintings communicate such a sense of loneliness and isolation. And always, at least it seems to me, there is silence in the solitude. Beautiful work.

  2. In his Palm Beach Post review of David Cole’s “Flags of the World” currently at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Scott Eyman quotes Cole as saying in regard to his favorite work of art, Hopper’s New York Movie, that “nothing could be more American, more modern, more alienated than that painting.” Yes!
