A stately house, surrounded and partly obscured by foliage, seems to represent the epitome of late summer. A selection of wide, flat brushes were used in building up tones from deep shadows to highlights, especially in the trees, shrubbery and lawn. A nod to van Gogh and his brilliant use of color to define form. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted a complementary brown.

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.
