Earl Francis Hofmann was born in Baltimore in 1928 and served in the United States Marine Corps from 1945 to 1949. After his discharge from the service, he graduated from The Maryland Institute, College of Art in 1953 and was awarded a graduate scholarship for study with M. Jacques Maroger. Early in his career, he studied with Reginald Marsh and accompanied him on many sketching trips in New York City, hence his early realistic paintings of New York cityscapes. He did many urban land and cityscapes and was devoted to the depicting the stark realism of urban renewal. He belonged to the "Baltimore Realists School."

In the late 1950's and 1960's his work was hung in many professional exhibits, Peale Museum, Baltimore; Corcoran Gallery, Washington, D.C.; Grand Central Galleries, NYC; where he had one-man shows in 1959 and 1962. He did medical and liturgical illustrative work in Baltimore through the 1960's and in 1969 became Artist-in Residence at St. Mary's College of MD, St Mary's City, Maryland. He later taught at the Charles County (MD) Community College. It can be said that he flourished from 1955 to 1980.
