This work is an homage to the many post-Impressionist and Fauve cityscapes, with its bold colors and expressionist paint handling. The composition focuses on the center of the canvas, where the vertical trees, the curve of the street, and the horizon line of the water all intersect.

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