This study of several dwellings on Monhegan, Maine focuses on the picturesque surroundings. The dramatic sky, the path and the yellow flowers in the foreground are rendered with energetic brushwork. These elements frame the dwellings in the center, which are more suggested than actually represented. The limited color in the structures also helps the sky and foreground pop, making the contrast stronger. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted 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.
