“The Mansard Roof” by Edward Hopper is a 1923 watercolor capturing a Victorian mansion in Gloucester. Hopper, then relatively unknown, depicted architectural reality with meticulous detail and emphasis on light. The building’s asymmetry is balanced from a unique angle, contrasting with loose brushstrokes. Hopper’s choice of an out-of-fashion subject symbolized societal changes, while aligning with the old America. Despite initial disdain, the painting succeeded, winning a prize and being acquired by the Brooklyn Museum. It evokes contemplation, nostalgia, and challenges prevailing artistic trends.
