Avec ses toiles aux couleurs froides, peuplées de personnages anonymes, l’œuvre d’Hopper symbolise aussi le reflet de los angeles Grande Dépression. A travers des reproductions variées (gravures, aquarelles, huiles sur toile), l’auteur, par une examine tant artistique que thématique, nous apporte un éclairage nouveau sur l’univers énigmatique et torturé de ce peintre majeur.
