This work offers up warmer times during the colder seasons. Essentially a celebration of color, it uses a palette that is reminiscent of the bold Fauvist landscapes. Of special note is the left foreground, in which a range of intense tones represent the interplay of light and shadow on the tree trunks. The sides of this gallery-wrapped painting are 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.
