Summer in the Gatsby city

Wednesday, 18 July, 2012

Much of the greatness of Edward Hopper resided in his ability to paint silent spaces. His 1949 canvas “Summer in the City” reveals the solitude of two people sharing a hotel bedroom by suggesting that presence can sometime equal absence. Its presence here today heralds the start of the annual Rainy Day Great Gatsby reading, a summer-in-the-city tradition.
