In this work, the composition is based on the centrally-located old house, framed by the curving road below and the sky above, and bracketed on the left by trees and on the right by the receding line of telephone poles. Bright sunlight creates bold colors and contrasts, and the paint is applied thick and with energy. Think of this as a piece of small town Americana, but with supercharged color!

The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It 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.
