Historical Context:
Chop Suey (1929) is a painting by Edward Hopper that portrays two women in conversation at a café. According to some art scholars, one striking detail of Chop Suey is that its female subject faces her doppelgänger, the ghostly double of a living person that haunts its living counterpart. This painting is in the collection of The Whitney Museum of American Art.
