THE ART OF RAILROADING. This week's feature at DoDo's Train Blogging notes that the Impressionists loved trains. Several of the paintings commenters have submitted hang, fittingly, in the Art Institute of Chicago.
The image is a different twist on art and railroading. Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks," which hangs in the same gallery as "American Gothic" (when the latter is not on tour), provided the interior arrangements for this all-night counter near the station.
The location is on the late John Armstrong's Canandaigua Southern in suburban Washington, D.C.
