This study of an abandoned house on Maryland's Eastern shore benefits from bold colors and expressive paint handling. The simple composition is anchored by the center of the house with the high gable, which is flanked by vegetation and a single tree. Despite the colors, this piece suggests an earlier time and a sense of the past. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and it arrives wired and 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.
