This is American artist, Edward Hopper’s painting, Sunlight in Cafeteria. Hopper created interior and exterior space by using 2 point perspective. Hopper used the architectural lines to create an illusion of depth. Although Hopper painted a number of topics, i.e. seascapes, urban architecture and cityscapes were also major topics. Hopper used light and shadow to create feelings and atmosphere. I have added lines to Hopper’s painting. The horizon line (HL) shows the eye level of the artist and viewer. The right side shows the vanishing point (VP1) where all design lines pointing right converge on the horizon line. The outside building’s design lines also converge at this vanishing point. The left vanishing point (VP2) has the convergence of structural design lines pointing toward the left. In this painting you see a third vanishing point; this is likely an error caused by photographing and loading the image.
In August 2010 my paintings will be exhibited at the Art for All Canada’s Rainbow Gallery. The Gallery is at 80 Front St. East across from Toronto’s historic St. Lawrence Market. You enter the Gallery through Rainbow Cinemas, Market Square. Viewing the exhibits is free. At the top of this site is a link to Art for All Canada’s Gallery.
