Edward Hopper, Nighthawks, 1942

-Hopper uses value in this painting, there seems to be very low value towards the left and the right the opposite with high value

-Hopper uses two point perspective as we see the corner of the dinner we can see multiple sides of it

-There is a sense of space in this painting where we see shadows and darkness and it shows the amount of space in the painting

-Hopper uses unity that is not very obvious but we can see that he wanted us to feel like there is privacy and mystery to the painting because we have no idea what could be happening in the dinner because they are closed in the dinner and its night time
