Color is key in this expressive work, in which the bold reds and golds are balanced by the more subtle purples, blues and greens which surround them. Minimal detail and energetic brushwork help to emphasize its spontaneous quality. The sides of this gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and it arrives 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.
