Despite the subject, this work is full of color, and like the Fauve paintings which inspired it, makes use of a simplified rendering style and expressive paint handling to create a compelling image. The composition consists of a strong horizontal intersected by a equally strong vertical, which helps provide a powerful foundation for the piece. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted brown, and it 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.
