Edward Hopper’s distinctive oil paintings convey subtle emotion, often construed as loneliness. A single figure populates Portrait of Orleans, imparting a sense of silence to the nearly deserted scene. Still, Hopper (American, 1882–1967) repeatedly maintained that his interest lay in capturing light rather than conveying a mood. “I like long shadows and early and late sunlight. I am very much interested in light, and particularly sunlight, trying to paint sunlight without eliminating the form under it, if I can.” Hopper traveled throughout the United States for more than forty years, recording everyday views of people and their surroundings.

An enjoyable puzzle that poised enough challenge.
Harder than it looks. Great puzzle from Pomegranate as usual.
I love Hooper's paintings, so I really enjoyed this puzzle. It looked easier than it turned out to be; the sky and street areas were really challenging.
Pomegranate is the absolutely best brand of jigsaw puzzles in terms of quality. Zero dust, regular-shape pieces, perfectly cut, no breakage and near-perfect interlocking. The Hopper painting is a marvel, so this is the best possible combination for those who enjoy his art as well as jigsaw puzzles.
