Description Painter, sculptor and educator, Earl Francis Hofmann was a major part of the Baltimore art scene of the mid-20th century. Hofmann was born in 1928 in Baltimore, Maryland. He started painting at the age of 12 and continued to develop his interest in art throughout his teenage years. Hofmann attended Maryland Institute College of Art where he studied, and later taught, and assisted Jacques Maroger. He later studied with Reginald Marsh during the early 1950s.

Hofmann won many awards including a prize and representation at the Grand Central Art Galleries in New York City in 1951 in a juried competition which was judged by Edward Hopper. He exhibited at the Peale Museum in Baltimore, Corcoran Gallery of Art Biennial, Venice Biennial, Guggenheim Traveling Exhibition, Butler Institute of American Art and the International Institute of Arts and Letters.

In 1961, Hofmann and a group of Baltimore painters founded the Maroger Group and the Six Realists. Hofmann painted and exhibited portraits, street scenes, still life, liturgical images, fantasy scenes and murals.
