JOSEF HOFER

Born in: Europe

Josef Hofer (Bavaria, 1945) does not speak and suffers limited mobility, but his drawings convey language and movement for him. As a child, he learned his craft by copying pictures in books, moving on when he was ready to represent his immediate environment. Having been raised on a farm, these early drawings were of peasant life, basketry, agricultural machinery, horses, and chariots, though none have been preserved. Hofer suffers from mental retardation and has spent much of his life institutionalized. His original artwork, first discovered by art historian Elisabeth Telsnig, has been preserved since 1998.
