This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Donald Lord, a personal friend of the artist when the artist lived in Spring Lake, New Jersey. bDonald Lord received many of Hoefler's paintings, records of his work, and hundreds of photos of his paintings from the artist's widow.

The art editor of the Fort Lauderdale News, November 8, 1964, wrote: "You must see Arthur Hoefler's paintings to witness realism at its best.  We do not hesitate to compare his paintings to Andrew Wyeth's realism.  However, Arthur Hoefler paints with more warmth and color."

Seen in his paintings, so favorably reviewed by many critics, is Arthur Hoefler's talent for capturing the essence of a subject in a realistic style and use of strong light and vivid color.

This artist and painter was also a licensed architect in four states, and studied architecture at the Equitable Beaux Arts Atelier in Newark, New Jersey, a branch of the Paris Ecole des Beaux Arts Atelier.  His interest in painting and sculpting remained during his studies, and he continued to paint and travel with his wife throughout the United States particularly in the Southwest, where he drew much inspiration for his work that he created with oil, watercolors, and bronze.

Hoefler's artwork was exhibited in about 30 one-man shows including in New York, New Jersey, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Florida, and was displayed in such settings as John Wanamaker's, Westchester, New York; The Schramm Galleries, Florida; the National Arts Club; N.H. Little Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Stebbins & Park View, Tennessee; The Altrusa Club, Memphis; and the Stony Brook Gallery in New York.

"The Crucifixion", a religious piece, was described by an assistant Vatican curator as a "sublime piece of work with the nearest to it, 'Boticelli's Bronze' ". Another of Hoefler's popular paintings, a western, "Twenty Mule Team", was offered by the Hoeflers to the White House after Ronald Reagan was elected.  Although the President was very interested in the large painting because of its western content, the White House could not accept a painting by a living artist.

Arthur Hoefler spent his last years living in Spring Lake, New Jersey, lecturing occasionally at St. Rose School, Belmar, NJ.  A popular quote of his was "I instruct. I don't teach."  This statement was an introspective reflection coming from a man whose private life was often as obscured for the public's view as the signatures he would disguise within the vibrant paintings he created.

Additional notes supplied by his great-niece Beth Bond:
Uncle Art was born on April 2, 1904 in Cornwall-on-the-Hudson, New York, and died January 5, 1984 in Neptune, Monmouth County, New Jersey.

His parents were Arthur  Albert Hoefler and Sara S. McGiehan.  He was a very talented man, artist and architect, and a real gentleman. His second wife Marie Mueller was his widow.
