Morning sunlight streaming in from far above creates this dramatic effect, heightened by the Fauvist color palette and expressive brushwork. The houses sit in a small valley, and the contrast as the light gradually reaches into the scene is unmistakable. Bring a bit of early morning sun into your home with this compelling visual statement. 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.
