This dramatic composition, with lots of perspective lines receding to a "framed" center, is accentuated here with unabashed color. Many of the larger color fields get added strokes of complementary and/or contrasting colors, which creates subtle visual vibrations. The lack of any real detail allows the interplay of tones to take center stage. Place this wherever you need a jolt of glorious color! The sides are painted brown, and it arrives wired and 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.
