Edward Hopper, New York Restaurant, 1922; Muskegon Museum of Art.
If you see a photo of a painting that seems to be all one color in different shades, it's probably an altered image with much of the original coloring and detail removed. As you can see here, the real-world painting is strongly colored in Hopper's signature style, and is also very sophisticated in its use of light and shadow, depth, and contrast. The reproduction that's been circulating recently (see below) doesn't have any of these qualities.
