Edward Hopper, the American realist painter of the early to mid-1900s, had a way of showcasing loneliness in his carefully created works that quickly put viewers in a somber mood. And of his numerous paintings, none is better-known than Nighthawks, his 1942 work depicting a diner late at night. Though it’s by far his most well-known, how much do you really know about it? Here, The Nerdwriter takes you deep inside the iconic piece to show you how events like Pearl Harbor may have influenced Hopper while creating it.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
