Inspired by de Vlaminck's landscapes, Robert rendered this work in blocks of thick color to build visual freshness and energy. The composition is centered on the house in the middle, but the trees, path, wall and other structures connect it to the rest of the piece. Extraneous detail is not included, as emotion and raw color are the primary focus. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted a complementary 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.
