By 1931, when it was exhibited at MAG and acquired with funds donated by a relative of the Watson family, Hopper had become HOPPER; the Museum of Modern Art had purchased one of his paintings the year before. While MAG does not own any of his canvases, we are fortunate to own this print and one other from Hopper’s decade of printmaking, 1915–1924. The cinematic quality of Hopper’s paintings is evident even in his etchings. A shadowy figure placed at the far end of a line of benches could easily be a character from a Hollywood “film noir.” [Label text from It Came From the Vault exhibition, 2013]", "Dedication" : "Granger A.

The artist gives us the sense that we are unseen watchers observing clandestine activity, and we have a feeling of unease. Strongly contrasting light and dark areas and sharp diagonal lines heighten these precarious and anxious feelings. Who are these people? Are they city dwellers or newcomers? As Jonathan Franzen wrote in a 1966 essay in the New Yorker, “There’s no better way of rejecting where you came from, no plainer declaration of an intention to reinvent yourself, than moving to New York.” Hopper’s work suggests how the city’s cloak of anonymity makes Franzen’s statement possible.

While John Sloan’s tender print of a bedtime moment in a New York tenement seems far removed from the ubiquitous and explicit displays of contemporary sexuality, the image was firmly rejected for the American Water Color Society’s 1906 exhibition as being ‘vulgar’ and ‘indecent.’ Sloan was part of a group of artists later called the Ashcan School, who did not shy away from subjects that other artists found unworthy or unattractive. Because so many of the artists, among them Sloan, had difficulty exhibiting their work due to their choice of subject matter and their idiosyncratic styles, they mounted their own exhibition in 1908 at Macbeth Gallery in New York City and were subsequently referred to as The Eight.
