 Dates:  1904-1984 
 Abstract:  Vlastislav Hofman (1884-1964), architect, painter, and set and costume designer, was a leading member of the Czech modernist movement, and is perhaps best known for his work in the theater. In a career which spanned approximately forty years he designed sets for nearly 300 productions and worked with many leading Czech dramaturges. The Vlastislav Hofman papers and drawings contains material from several stages in Hofman's career, and include an extensive collection of letters and postcards from prominent figures in the Czech avant-garde movement; business correspondence regarding exhibitions and conferences; several volumes of photographs of set designs, costume designs, and production designs; architectural sketches; and several original drawings of projects in the decorative arts representative of an early period in his career.
