In the painting Nighthawks by Edward Hopper, multiple examples of modernism are used. One important element of modernism is that the reader must particpate. On this lonely night there is a couple on one side of the bar, a lonely man on the other, and a bartender. The reader must participate here because the painting is a mystery, and Hopper employs alienation. Withought the reader participating the painting will never be solved and it will stay a puzzle.
