In this large work, I was originally interested in the unusual style of the house. With bold color, expressive paint handling, and careful placement of elements in the foreground, the viewer's gaze is now carefully guided to this structure, framed as it is by the two tall trees. This is definitely a statement work, whose size and content can enliven any space. The sides of this 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.
