This work attempts to capture that intense spring sunshine as it floods the picture plane directly at the viewer. This creates very strong colors and contrasts which are on display here. Of special interest in this landscape is the sky, in which a pale cool wash was first applied, and then covered by large vertical strokes of intense yellow, which echo the brushwork found in the trees and shadows cast on the lawn. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted brown.

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.
