This winter-themed landscape clearly draws inspiration from Van Gogh, from the energetic brushwork to the circular glow of various light sources. The sharply drawn perspective draws the eye from the left foreground into the center background, where the distant lantern casts its light on the snowy sidewalk below. The sides are painted brown, and the work arrives wired and 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.
