Lord Alexander Barnes is determined to bring a bit of English civility to the wild terrain of Emerson Pass. Using his own resources, the widower and father of five builds a schoolhouse and recruits a young teacher from the east to provide an education for both the adults and the children in his rapidly growing mining town. But when the lovely, and much younger than anticipated, Miss Cooper arrives in town, Lord Barnes finds himself providing more than just employment when the boarding house proves to be an unsafe accommodation for the school mistress.

Nighthawks is one of Hopper’s New York City paintings, and the artist said that it was based on a real café. Many people have tried to find the exact setting of the painting, but have failed. In his wife’s diaries, she wrote that she and Hopper himself both served as models for the people in the painting. Despite these real-life details, the empty composition and flat, abstracting planes of color give the canvas a timeless feel, making it an object onto which one can project one’s own reality. Perhaps this is why it has lent itself to so well to many parodies, even appearing as a motif on an episode of The Simpsons.

Chinese doctors have used Tocilizumab to prevent an overreaction of the immune system that has led to organ failure and death in coronavirus patients. An initial clinical trial in China used Actemra in 20 severe COVID-19 cases. Nineteen of the patients were discharged from the hospital within two weeks and one got better, according to China’s National Health Commission. The drug has now been approved for use in China, but has not yet been approved in the United States.

The painting shows an all-night diner in which three customers are seated, lost in their own thoughts, under an “eerie glow,” according to a description on the Art Institute of Chicago website.
Blogger Jeremiah Moss has chronicled his journey to find the real-life Nighthawks diner, writing in a 2010 New York Times op-ed piece that city folklore has suggested that Mulry Square — a triangular lot at Greenwich Avenue and Seventh Avenue South — was the site of the diner. His research found that it couldn’t be the case because a gas station stood there from the 1930s to the 1970s.

Paints Nighthawks, purchased by the Art Institute of Chicago, and is an overnight success, becoming signature work for Hopper and an iconic American image.
Post-Impressionism flourished during this era. Fauvism, Cubism, and Dada were exciting new trends and Surrealism brewed on the horizon. However, Edward Hopper showed no interest in new styles. He did not enroll in classes, nor did he mingle with modernist artists. Instead, Hopper read French literature and painted scenic views inspired by early masters like Goya and the nineteenth century impressionists Manet and Degas.
Among Hopper’s classmates were the talented realists George Bellows, Guy Pène du Bois, and Rockwell Kent. Their teachers included Kenneth Hayes Miller and William Merritt Chase, who used traditional techniques of realism to depict everyday scenes. Most significantly, Hopper became a student of Robert Henri, leader of the Ashcan School. Henri, who believed that artists should report on harsh conditions of the poor, promoted bold urban realism.
