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.
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.

Just a fabulous piece that grabs the eye when people see it on my wall. Extremely happy. Great artistry, Mr. Hofherr!- M Cellucci
I had everybody over to my house for a Robert Hofherr welcome party!! Hope this is the first of many pieces I will collect. So beautiful. Even my daughter, who typically does not share my taste in art, took one look and said, "Finally, we agree."- C Hastings
