Edward Hopper, Office By Night (1945)

  • The secretary pushed the steel file cabinet onto the man and it crushed his torso.

  • So many silences until the typewriter couldn’t take it anymore and keyed-in a word by itself: Dear.

  • This is a prelude to Chagall’s Over the Village. Notice the prepared window.

  • She is pretending to search for a poem, he pretending to read one. How could they believe a kiss to be just a kiss and nothing else?

  • It is already late but he still hasn’t noticed her new zinc blue satin dress.
