About Queensborough Bridge

The artwork “Queensborough Bridge” was created by Edward Hopper in 1913. It is an oil on canvas painting with dimensions of 20 x 24.9 cm. The piece is categorized within the cityscape genre and reflects the New Realism art movement.

The painting depicts a segment of the Queensborough Bridge, capturing both its monumental structure and the metropolitan context in which it resides. Hopper’s composition presents the bridge with a dramatic perspective, emphasizing its architectural details and the solidity of its construction. The palette appears to consist of subtle, somewhat muted colors which evoke a pensive mood, characteristic of Hopper’s work. Underneath the bridge, buildings that seem residential or industrial hint at the urban environment. The use of light and shadows, as well as the loose brushwork, contributes to the atmospheric quality of the scene, which flirts with the transition between representational art and the onset of modern abstraction.
