Hopper is known for creating a surreal, desolate atmosphere in his paintings. The people in his paintings are never happy. The paintings also evoke a feeling of "together yet alone". If one looks at Hopper's entire oeuvre, one could draw the conclusion that the isolation of the individual takes centre stage in the vast majority of his paintings. In his paintings, there is rarely any contact with other people, even if there are several people present in the picture. Some examples are the works in which people are waiting in a theatre for a show to begin.
