About Steps in Paris

The artwork titled “Steps in Paris,” is a creation by Edward Hopper dating back to 1906. This cityscape is rendered in oil on canvas and is a testament to the New Realism movement. The piece measures 46 by 48 centimeters and is housed in the Whitney Museum of American Art located in New York City, New York, in the United States.

The artwork portrays a flight of stairs, characterized by its angular composition and the play of light and shadow, which adds depth and texture to the scene. Hopper’s treatment of the subject is simplistic yet evocative, capturing the essence of a moment in the city with a certain quietude and introspection that are often associated with his oeuvre. The warm, earthy tones of the stairs contrast with the bright, overcast sky, accentuating the geometric forms and the physicality of the urban environment. Hopper’s brushwork is visible, creating a sense of immediacy and the subtle intricacies of the scene.
