Just In: An Early Edward Hopper Etching

June 26, 2017

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) is delighted to offer ‘Night Shadows,’ an outstanding early etching created in 1921 by Edward Hopper, for the Fall 2017 Modern Art & Design Auction. In ‘Night Shadows’ a solitary pedestrian scurries along a shadowy, empty city street under close watch from skyscrapers hovering above. We peer down with the skyscrapers and streetlamps, casting our gaze over the lone figure without knowledge of where they are heading or with what purpose, although, like film noir, the etching’s dark tonalities induce a somber mood that suggests a quiet desperation and vague ominousness at hand.
