This simple yet colorful rendition of a bookstore in the city uses bright vertical brushstrokes to provide visual interest as well as some surface uniformity. The wet sidewalk and street are reflective surfaces, and become more important in the overall composition. Close your eyes and you can almost smell the coffee from the cafe next door! 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished brown edges. 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.
