About the Work

A ghostly fawn hovers against foliage lit by a shaft of bright yellow light in this dramatic painting by Peter Hoffer. The work is reminiscent of 18th century animal portraits such as those by George Stubbs who depicted prized or noble wild animals against the English landscape. While Hoffer's painting of a lone fawn evokes nostalgia for these forms and periods, his use of compositional chiaroscuro gives this portrait a haunted quality.
