Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Karl (Carl) Johannes Christian Hofer (1878-1955)

Hofer was born in 1878 in Karlsruhe, Germany.  He was strongly influenced by the classical idealism of Hans von Marees; also Cezanne.  He lived in Paris between 1908 to 1913, then settled in Berlin, where he achieved considerable success.  At the end of World War II, he was appointed Director of the Hochschule Fur Bildende Kunste in Berlin. 

His painting was expressionist in style but more restrained and poetic.  Hofer was the first German ever to win first prize at the Carnegie International Exhibition.  He was not a Nazi, and was forbidden to exhibit in Germany as a "degenerate" artist during the Nazi regime.  He died in Berlin in 1955.
