Polish and Czech artist, 20th century
- born in Prague but most of his life lived in Poland in Szklarska Poręba;
- changed his Czech name Vlastimil Hofmann to more Polish-looking Wlastimil Hofman;
- was a student of Jacek Malczewski and Leon Wyczółkowski
There is so much nostalgy and warmth in his paintings...
Violinist and an Angel, 1923
Girls Playing, 1917
One of the most famous and most beautiful paintings:
Both pictures - the one on th eleft and the one just below are called Spring. I put them here to make winter fall asleep and invite spring.
