Public domain US ← → Girl at a Sewing Machine Edward Hopper Date: 1921 Style: New Realism Series: 'Window' paintings Genre: genre painting Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 48 x 46 cm Location: Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid, Spain Tags: furniture-and-decoration, doors-and-windows Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girl_at_Sewing_Machine References: www.museothyssen.org Order an oil painting reproduction Ad The painting portrays a young girl sitting at a sewing machine facing a window on a beautiful sunny day. The location appears to be New York as is evident from the yellow bricks in the window. The exterior vantage point although present only aids in putting the interior activity in perspective. It is one of the first of many of Hopper's "window paintings". Hopper's repeated decision to pose a young woman against her sewing is said to be his commentary on solitude. The painting is the inspiration for Mary Leader's poem of the same name.
