This study of sailing boats demonstrates the Fauve approach to painting: unbridled color, aggressive paint handling, and simplified rendering style. The shoreline on three sides helps to "frame" the boats, and the sharp lines of the sails are a good contrast to the soft clouds and trees.

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.
