This moody rendering of a snowy deserted street captures that hushed stillness of a winter evening. Subtle colors abound, and the thickly applied paint and minimal detail help to suggest the actual weight of a heavy snow. The gently curved street pulls the eye into the center of the composition, where one can see the outline of a distant church.

The painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished brown edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Robert

Robert Hofherr avoids depicting a landscape exactly as he sees it or as the viewer might expect. Instead, he enjoys reimagining landscapes and painting his pieces indoors at a fairly rapid pace. The works of French Fauve artists Maurice de Vlaminck and André Derain initially got him interested in painting, and also influenced his decision to not use grey in his works. During his free time he enjoys spending time with his kids, walking his dogs and taking road trips to out-of-way places in the mid-Atlantic region. He currently lives in Maryland.
