An historic house gets the full-on Fauve treatment in this work. The house itself is much less important than the screen of trees in the foreground, which explode in a riot of bold colors, textures, and shapes. This is definitely a statement piece, capable of transforming a dull wall instantly. 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.
