About Reclining Nude

The artwork titled “Reclining Nude” is a creation of Edward Hopper from the year 1924. This piece is executed in watercolor and belongs to the New Realism art movement. Hopper is known for his contributions to the genre of nude painting (nu).

In the image, the watercolor painting showcases a female figure lying down, with her body positioned away from the viewer, making her face not visible. She seems to be resting on a white surface, possibly a bed or a couch, and is surrounded by pillows in bold colors such as yellow, orange, and black that create a stark contrast with her pale skin. The use of shadow and light in the artwork gives it a sense of depth, and the impressionistic brushstrokes add a level of texture and movement to the scene. Hopper’s minimalist approach with the background focuses the attention on the nude figure and the interplay of colors and forms.
