About Mountie III

The iconic presence of a Mountie in red serge on a white horse is set against a backdrop of a cerulean lake and atmospheric sky. Peter Hoffer's paintings evoke nostalgia for classical, romantic forms and periods. Here he seems to look to the sublime in the 18th century paintings of John Constable. In his romantic landscapes Constable would indicate the presence of man through the use of red.
