Art: New Artwork Discovered (famous works series #6)

So here's yet another hitherto unknown painting by a well-known artist that's been discovered. This time it's an American classic by Edward Hopper.
It's the latest installment in my "famous works" series. The others already posted are a "Burne-Jones" picture here , an "El Greco" one here, a Hockney one here, two Magrittes here, and a Dürer here.

Here's the reference work if you're interested:

(OK, so that's it with this series for now, but who knows what other "famous works" might someday come to light...)
