This piece hearkens back to some of the Impressionist and early Fauve landscapes, with its simplified rendering style and upbeat color palette. The composition is based on a repeated series of gentle opposing curves, broken only by the vertical elements provided by the trees in the foreground. This painting will add color to any space all year round. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted brown, and it arrives 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.
