This study of Boston's Public Garden originated with a personal photo taken during a visit. I tried to emphasize the lushness of the tall trees with large brushstrokes and a rich palette of intense greens. Detail is minimal, but if you close your eyes you can almost feel the warm summer sun on your face! 

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. 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.
