This work is a colorful, expressive treatment of part of the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore. A monument to George Washington, as well as an equestrian statue, are visible to the left of the large tree that dominates the composition. Despite the urban setting, the palette has been punched up to create a bold and lively image. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted brown, and 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.
