About the artwork

The exploration of the combined concepts of solitude and beauty is the central theme of David Degelin's work. For the artist, solitude can lead to moments of reflection, meditation and even happiness, while for others, solitude rhymes with sorrow and suffering. He thus explores the beauty he perceives through portraits rich in references and teachings.


Inspired by the painting with the same title of Edward Hopper, I wanted to re-create a contemporary version using the facade of the Magritte museum with a twist. I wanted to use the winter light to generate a version that is bluer, colder than the original painting using the low winter sun light of early afternoon. For the Flemish model, Ulrike Panjaer, it was a challenge to a summery pose at the time, the temperature dropped below zero.
