Scope and Contents

The work of Hoffmeister is presented in this catalogue, edited by Harald Olbrich, in several phases. Following his early realistic prints and paintings in the 1920's, the artist composed line drawing cartoons of many of his contemporaries, including Man Ray, Karel Teige, Le Corbusier, Vladimir Mayakovski, and James Joyce. By the 1930's the drawings became more political in subject matter and included cartoons of an exhibition consisting of identical Hitler portraits and sculptures, Picasso painting Guernica, and Louis Aragon holding an immense flag. In the 1960's, Hoffmeister employed collage elements with drawn additions for literary illustration, for example, in the works of Jules Verne. During this period, Hoffmeister created collages of landscapes and cities with incorprated texts, as well as visionary works similar to those of Jess and Max Ernst. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
