Josef Hoffmann

Josef Hoffmann was born in 1870 in Brtnice, Moravia (then part of the Austro-Hungarian empire), and never went beyond the boundaries of the state; died in Vienna in 1956.Together with his professor Otto Wagner, Josef (not Joseph) Hoffmann is one of the major exponents of the Viennese Secession: he immediately emerges as an exceptional designer, able to suggest future and modernity through a wise use of geometric shapes; in this sense his paintings are known.He performs illustrations, cartoons and decorative friezes for Ver Sacrum, the official magazine of the Austrian Sezessionstil, with characteristic features of the local Jugendstil. He is also responsible for arranging the frequent exhibitions and to make known to the public and to the young market architects and designers.
