About the Work

The piece, “Waiting in the Wing” offers a behind-the-scenes moment between ballerinas waiting to meet their audience. The intricate costumes, the perfectly done hair and makeup, are a trademark beauty of ballet. Even at ease, these elegant swans seem to be mindful of their movements. Hofmann masterfully captures this in a photorealistic way that offers an endless study of the details and a suggestive artist voice that only he can offer.

“Waiting in the Wings” is an exquisitely detailed 33.75 x 20.25 – inch hand-pulled lithograph on Arches paper. It is a limited edition of 340 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.
