by Edward Hopper who died at the age of 84 on this date in 1967. The painting has inspired writers and musicians including Tom Waits' Nighthawks at the Diner (1975):

and has been used in culture and political memes:

"This place is packed!"

Pull up to the counter, and join me for a cuppa joe. I take mine black. You?


  1. Edward Hopper's painting is super- I can't watch the video in my country - but no matter
    Happy T-Day !
    Hugs, Susi

  2. I love the colours in this wonderful painting! Off to find Tom Waits on YouTube, as the video wouldn't open for me here in the UK.
    Thanks for the anniversary wishes, and I hope you're getting as many bees visiting your patio as we are.

  3. What a wonderful painting! The use of the light and dark colours is so atmospheric - beautiful 😁. Happy T Tuesday! J 😊 x

  4. I enjoy wondering what is going on in the minds of the people sitting at the lunch counter late at night. It's a fabulous painting, and one I am quite familiar with. Should I have linked you today?

  5. This is a fabulous painting. I saw it in Chicago once, and it does stop you in your tracks. If my memory serves me right-which it may not at this hour of the morning and me being half asleep-it is a big painting too. And nice tune too. Happy Wednesday. Hugs-Erika
