About Woman at Cafe Table

The artwork, titled “Woman at Cafe Table,” was created by the artist Edward Hopper between the years 1906 and 1907. Crafted using watercolor and graphite, it epitomizes the New Realism movement. The genre painting measures 50.6 by 37.8 centimeters and is part of the collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art located in New York City, New York, USA.

The artwork depicts a woman seated at a cafe table. The setting presents the subject in a seemingly candid pose, as if captured in a moment of reflection or waiting. The woman’s attire and hat suggest a time period from the early 20th century. The color palette is relatively subdued, with the various shades of her dress and hat providing a sense of depth to the composition. The artist’s use of light and shadow conveys a mood that is typical of Hopper’s exploration of everyday life and urban solitude. The painting communicates an intimate atmosphere, common in Hopper’s settings, where a single figure often encapsulates a narrative or an emotional state. The simplicity of the background, created with a minimalist approach, focuses attention on the subject, inviting viewers to interpret the scene, the woman’s expression, and her possible thoughts or emotions.
