An outdoor art fair in a city is the subject of this colorful piece. The buildings are rendered in large sections of bright colors, leaving the foreground to be developed with more detail and more expressive brushwork. The people, art, easels, etc. are rendered in quick strokes of color, allowing the red underpainting to be visible and creating an almost abstract quality. This is a piece of art with art itself as the subject.

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.
