About Standing Female Figure

The artwork titled “Standing Female Figure” was created by artist Edward Hopper in the year 1900. Utilizing ink as the medium, Hopper crafted this piece within the realm of New Realism. The work serves as a sketch and study, measuring 29.8 by 40.8 centimeters. Currently, it is housed at the Brooklyn Museum located in New York City, NY, US.

The artwork depicts a composed, standing female figure attired in late 19th to early 20th-century dress, which can be discerned from the style of her hat and the cut of her garments. The refinement of her attire suggests a focus on the fashion and social norms of the time period. She appears in profile, with a poised posture that exudes a sense of dignity and grace. Hopper’s expert use of hatching and cross-hatching techniques imbues the drawing with depth and texture, capturing the delicate interplay of light and shadow across her form. Despite the sketchy nature of the work, the attention to detail in the woman’s attire, including the folds of her dress and the embellishments on her bodice, is meticulous. The artist’s signature, along with the year of creation, is prominently displayed on the right side of the sketch, affirming the work’s authenticity and historical significance.
