In the famous painting "Nighthawks," three people sit in a diner, hands resting on the counter, as light spills out onto the sidewalk of the dark and desolate city. The artist, Edward Hopper, became known for this kind of scene-lonely, urban, architectural. Some of his other famous works depict women alone in hotel rooms.

Hopper also had a thing for wilder landscapes. In her new book, "Edward Hopper in Vermont," South Royalton author Bonnie Tocher Clause explains the connection between the painter and the Green Mountain State.
