Charles Hoffbauer (1875 – 1957) was born in Paris, the son of an architect. He studied under Fernand Cormon and Gustave Moreau, then won a medal at the Universal Exposition of 1900. In France, he served on Salon juries and eventually was awarded the coveted Légion d’Honneur. On a traveling scholarship (1909), Hoffbauer visited New York and was given two solo shows in 1911 and 1912. Hoffbauer served in the French Army during the first world war, then revisited America to accept a commission for a mural in the Missouri State Capitol. In 1941, he escaped occupied France, became an American citizen, and moved to Rockport (Cape Ann), Massachusetts.
