Three Things: Motel Edition
Summer is the time for road trips and getaways — and with it, sleeping in hotels and motels. Let’s pack a bag, jump in the car, train, boat, or jet, and spend a few days in another place, enjoying the new view from our foreign beds. Here are three such views to prompt some plots.
Edward Hopper, Western Motel, 1957. Oil on canvas. Yale University Art Gallery, Connecticut.
Pablo Picasso, Postcard to Jean Cocteau, St.-Raphaël, 1919. Ink and watercolor on card.
