In this painting, we again see Hopper revealing a since of unnerving quietness and loneliness. The scene outside of the diner seems almost abandoned by the world, with nothing to suggest that anyone is around. Although both of the works that we have looked at so far share the similar content of lonely and distant figures, this painting has one essential difference to consider. Unlike the fist painting we see of Hopper's, which is open and allows the audience into the lobby, "Nighthawks" is completely set apart from the rest of the audience. The diner, which provides the only source of light in the painting, does not even have a door, suggesting that the figures within are totally out of reach.
