The palette in this expressive interior study with figures is limited to blue, red, and the hues that occur when these are mixed, lightened or darkened. By restricting the color choices, the paint handling and textural elements become more prominent. This limited tonal range also eliminates any representational quality in the piece, emphasizing its decorative and stylized nature instead. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted a complementary brown.

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.
