About Eleven A.M.

Edward Hopper’s artwork titled “Eleven A.M.” was created in 1926 and is an exemplary piece of the New Realism art movement. This oil on canvas painting is categorized under the nude painting genre and is part of Hopper’s ‘Window’ paintings series. The artwork is currently located at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, US.

The artwork depicts an interior scene illuminated by natural daylight filtering through an open window. A nude female figure is seated on the edge of a bed, her body turned towards the window, gazing out in a contemplative manner. Her pose and the direction of her gaze suggest a moment of introspection or perhaps a longing. The room is modestly furnished and includes a chest of drawers, a framed picture hanging on the wall, a lamp on a small side table, and an armchair, creating a simple yet evocative domestic setting.

Hopper’s use of light and shadow carves out the form of the figure and the space around her, highlighting the palpable stillness and solitude that is characteristic of his work. The painting’s strong lines, geometric forms, and limited yet bold use of color contribute to a sense of stark realism, providing the viewer with an intimate glimpse into the private moment of the subject.
