We are taken up into an elevated railroad station where we see the tail end of a railway car and, on the platform, an empty luggage cart. Beyond the tracks are darkened factory buildings, awaiting the ﬁrst shift of workers. Curator Judith Barter feels that Hopper’s impulse was aesthetic: “the luggage cart and arched forms of the station ... ” Writing for the Terra Foundation, art historian Paula Wisotzki sees another motivation: “Edward Hopper often used the railroad as a theme to signal the rootlessness and anonymity of modern life.
Hopper shows us the mansard mansion with a gale almost blowing its awnings away ... an exposition of clear, bright windswept atmosphere. Mr. Hopper also painted tugboats and ship’s machinery with an equally seeing eye. ” Hopper named three: “Rembrandt, above all, and the etcher Méryon ... ” Like Hopper, Degas had followed his own artistic instincts, resisting all labels. He became disenchanted with the Salon in Paris and the fashion of painting historical scenes, and instead began to paint modern urban scenes.

He shows two large structures that at one time may have been impressive single-family homes, a similar, somewhat smaller house, and desperate ramshackle housing below. Local curator Angela Mack locates the scene at 56 Washington Street in the northeastern part of Charleston, where laborers in the local hospital and dressmakers had been crowded together for twenty years.
