This view of a large bridge over the Susquehanna River in southern Pennsylvania is an example of a composition in which a darker fore- and mid-ground "frame" a lighter background, which help to focus attention on this area. Rather than individual leaves, most of the foliage is rendered in large blocks of color, with some linear elements then applied in contrasting tones. The palette is bold but not overpowering.

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.
