This is a very expressive landscape, with the bold colors applied in a dramatic and energetic fashion. The plane of the foreground has been tilted upward so the path appears to be seen from overhead, creating visual ambiguity and interest, and allowing the path to function as a strong vertical element. 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.
