Herbert Draper,
Ulysses and the Sirens, 1909

 
“Do you know the story of the Sirens?” LP said. He pointed to the mural on the wall—a pitiable rendering of Herbert Draper’s painting circa 1909.

Edward Hopper,
Early Sunday Morning, 193
0
 

The image contained within the galley window resembled an Edward Hopper painting—a still-life sequel, perhaps, to Early Sunday Morning. Green willow branches framed the sides and top; in the background stretched a grassy pasture delineated by the posts of an electric fence; and in the foreground sat a red pickup truck dappled with sunspots. Two boys opened the passenger door and jumped out, startling LP, destroying the serenity of the picture.

— From Chapter 11 of The Immigrant
