Inspired by an old photograph, this work hearkens back to Van Gogh and his many depictions of country people. Despite the season, the work is full of color, as the snowy areas include purples, blues and pinks. Close your eyes and imagine the almost eerie quiet of a winter evening's approach. The gallery wrapped sides are painted brown, and it comes 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.
