Walter Hofner was born in Hamburg and studied in Berlin and Munich. He was a fierce opponent of Hitlarism and wished to dissociate himself entirely from Germany under the Nazis so emigrated to Dalmatia in Yugoslavia where he lived on the island of Korcula. In 1938 he exhibited in the "Exhibition of Degenerate Art" held in London alongsde Nolde,Klee,Kandinsky, Kokoscha and Otto Dix.
Anticipating the German invasion of Yugoslavia Hofner sent a number of his works for safekeeping to a friend in England. This collection was dispersed at auction by Lawrences of Crewkerne on July 17th 1975 where the present picture was purchased and has remained in the same hands ever since.
