Excellent article in The Guardian:

The three figures in the late-night diner of Edward Hopper’s quintessential New York painting Nighthawks tell us about the loneliness of life in the big city, while the criss-cross lines of Piet Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie seem to dance to its syncopated rhythms.
