About the Work

”Untitled I” is a charmingly exquisite print is a part of a four piece suite featuring ballerinas at the barre. The exceptional details are what collectors of Douglas Hofmann come to know and love as each line is expertly done and carefully thought out. In his works, Hofmann "strives to get the feeling of air. There is a 'signature' to the work that reveals my hand, my feelings and my personality." While each print is compelling enough on its own, they are also extraordinarily complementary as a full suite.

“Untitled I Dance Portfolio” is a hand-colored 9.75 x 12 – inch lithograph on Somerset velvet paper. It is a limited edition of 320 and hand-signed by the artist.

About the Artist

Douglas Hofmann was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1945 and began his training in art after high school at the Maryland Institute of Art. During his first year there he discovered Joseph Sheppard who would be significant mentor and influence throughout his career. He began studying with Sheppard, taking on anatomy, drawing and painting from the model, all of which were new to Hofmann. There he also discovered the Maroger method, which enables the artist to use thin layers of paint and techniques similar to those of the Old Masters. Through his burgeoning interest in the Old Masters, Hofmann began to develop his individual taste. Emulating Vermeer, he painted situations from his home and studio using his wife and children as his models. Hofmann later expanded his subject matter to include his memorable nudes and his much-loved ballet works. Though his subjects have changed over the years, women have always dominated his panels and prints.
