A quiet street in a small town takes on the Fauve ideal in this work. The midday sun creates lots of strong contrasts, which are enlivened by the interaction of many bold, even primary hues. The street is part of several strong perspective lines which draw the viewer into the center, where an arch leads upward to the town church spire. There is a richness to the color, since strokes of secondary or complementary tones have been added. The sides are painted brown, and it arrives 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.
