Bold colors and expressive brushwork are the key to this work. The tall trees in the center glow with sunlight and cast long, graphic shadows on the ground. The river itself glows with a different kind of light, as green, pink, sky blue and red contrast with deep blues and purples to create almost a "stained-glass" effect. The group of buildings are rendered with just minimal detail, and the painting as a whole makes a compelling visual statement. 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished brown 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.
