Born in Hamburg, Hofner studied in Berlin and Munich. He was a fierce opponent of Hitlarism and wished to dissociate himself from Germany under the Nazis. In 1934 he emigrated to Dalmatia in Yugoslavia, where he lived and painted on the island of Korcula, supporting himself by the sale of his paintings and manual labour. In 1938 he was invited to show at the so called "Degenerate Art Exhibition' in London,  which included work by Nolde, Klee, Kandinsky, Kokoscha and Otto Dix. When Yugoslavia was later invaded by Germany, Hofner had to flee with his family across the mountains. Anticipating the German invasion he sent many of his works to a friend in England for safekeeping. They were inspired by the romantic spirit and unspoilt landscape of Korcula in the 1930's. On July 17th 1975, Lawrences Auction Room in Crewkerne sold the collection
