Late summer study using the rich color palette of the mature season with autumn just around the corner. The small road in the middle ground and the edge of the lawn form a geometric boundary in an otherwise natural setting. There is detail here, but no more than is necessary. The mood created is quiet and contemplative, like the season itself. The sides 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.
