Essentially a color study of bold graphic shapes, this work consists almost entirely of large blocks of color. The mainly blues, violets and purples are balanced by the use of warm colors in the bridge, tree line, and sky. The leaves on the trees were added at the last, to soften up what is a very linear, graphic painting. A fairly modern way to add color to any wall.

The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and the work 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.
