This view of an open air market uses an updated color palette and expressive paint handling to transform the scene into a vibrant visual experience. The complexity of the market has been somewhat simplified to still suggest the myriad of objects, textures and colors without reducing the energy of the execution. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas 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.
