Edward Hopper – Nighthawks

Gottfried Helnwein - Nighthawks: Boulevard of Broken Dreams

Nighthawk is a person who normally stays up late at night. It is also the name of the famous painting by the American artist Edward Hopper.

In the second painting Gottfried Helnwein, an Austrian artist born in 1948, based his work on Hopper´s but substituted the four lonely people for the four American idols of the 20th century:

Elvis Presley and
