This view of a small auctioneer's establishment in York county, PA uses bold colors and raw, energetic brushwork to create visual impact. The composition is complex, with roads, telephone lines, and a distant horizon anchored by the vertical of the barn at the extreme right side. Interesting color relationships and textural effects are present in many parts of the work. A small piece that packs a punch! The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted 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.
