This work is equal parts expression and bold Fauvist color. The field in the foreground is rendered simply in wide vertical bands of color, and the horses are merely ephemeral strokes of the brush. The house and woods are nearly silhouettes, with only the smallest amount of detail necessary. Hang this wherever you desire a thoughtful dose of color. This piece 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.
