Series II. Correspondence, 1916-1963 0.83 linear feet (2 boxes)
This series contains letters and postcards received by Hofman from prominent Czech artists, writers, dramaturgists and critics. Some of these letters are of a more personal nature, but many provide interesting discussions on contemporary trends in art. The letters from Karel and Josef Čapek are undated, but most likely were sent in 1911 and 1912 when the brothers were living in Paris. One recent monograph on Czech Cubism mentions that both Hofman and Josef Čapek studied for a brief period in 1912 at the Academie Colarossi in Paris, though this information has not been corroborated in any other biographical sketch of Hofman ( Czech Cubism: Architecture, Furniture, and Decorative Arts, 1910-1925. New York: Princeton Architectural Press, 1992). The collection holds a number of letters from one of Hofman's clostest friends, the artist Vacláv Špála. Špála also traveled to Paris in 1911 and, like the Čapeks, contributed to the development of Cubism in Prague upon his return. None of the letters from Špála in the present collection date from 1911, but many were sent in 1913 when Špála was on a study fellowship in Italy. In one of his letters to Hofman, Špála provides an elaborate description of his theories of painting.
Included in the archive are a number of postcards from Hofman's close friend and fellow artist Pavel Janák. The postcards document Janák's travels to Florence, Rome, Munich, Vienna, and other cities in Europe. A few of the cards date as early as 1904, the earliest piece of correspondence in the collection, where Hofman and Janák were still at the Technical University in Prague. Of note are the letters and cards sent by a few of Hofman's friends and acquaintances, for example the dramaturge Josef Kodiček and the artist Bohumil Kubišta, while they were stationed at the front in WWI. Kubišta, one of the better known Czech painters of the Cubist movement, died soon after returning from the front in 1918.
Also present are postcards sent to Hofman in 1910 by the prominent art critic Václav Štech while he was abroad in Italy and Berlin. Both Štech and his wife Marie Štechová were close friends of Hofman. Štech and Hofman were among the founding members of the Skupina organization.
The collection contains sixty-five letters to Hofman from the writer Jan Bartoš dated between 1916 and 1918. During this period Hofman appears to have corresponded frequently and extensively with Bartoš who was then living in Turov. Bartoš played an integral role in Hofman's introduction into the world of theater in 1919, and Hofman later designed sets for productions of several of Bartoš' plays. The letters include copious notes by Bartoš on Fyodor Dostroevsky's novels. In a few letters he lists quotations from the novels regarding a particular character and then adds his own subsequent analysis of the character. Approximately at the same time as the letters were written, Hofman was working on a series of drawings inspired by these same characters of Dostoevsky's works.
Three postcards in the collection were written by Otakar Kubín to Josef Čapek. These are notable because it is believed that most of Čapek's correspondence was lost after his arrest by the Nazis in 1939; he would later die at Bergen-Belsen in 1945. All of the postcards from Kubín were sent from Paris, probably sometime in the early 1910s. In one postcard Kubín reports that he has attended a lecture by Filippo Tommaso Marínetti where he has met the sculptor Umberto Boccioni.
Two letters from the poet Stanislav Neumann discuss articles recently published by Hofman. The letters were written around the time when Hofman was designing book covers for Neumann's collections of poetry (see Series V, Box 13*). Also of note in Series II are two orginal music scores (piano fortes) written by Miroslav Ponc. The scores are written on small cards, signed by Ponc and dated 1961 and 1962.
Miscellaneous business correspondence in the collection provides accounts of the sale of works, honoraria for articles, and membership in Skupina vytvarných umělců. Several letters from Lee Simonson document Hofman's participation in an international exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1934. In his postcards from Die Aktion, Franz Pfempert asks Hofman to send reproductions of his works for the journal.

Series III. Printed matter and curricula vitae materials, 1936, 1964-1965, 1972, undated 0.42 linear feet (1 box)
The printed matter contains extensive biographical information on Hofman. A typescript of a lecture by Adolf Benš, given in Hofman's hometown Jičín two years after Hofman's death, provides details of Hofman's family background and career. The curricula vitae, written by Hofman and others, together with the many small exhibition catalogs provide a comprehensive account of Hofman's artistic activities.
The collection holds extensive material dating from Hofman's participation in the 4th Volta Conference, an international theater conference held in Rome in 1936. The conference was sponsored by the Reale Academia D'Italia and the Reunion Volta and was a significant event in the world of theater at the time. The conference was led by the Reunion's President, Luigi Pirandello, and was attended by many leading playwrights, set designers and dramaturges from all over the world. The collection includes a signed photograph of Pirandello and numerous other pieces of memorabilia from the event. Critical reviews of Hofman's work in theater, taken from numerous journals, cover various stages of his career. There are also reviews of exhibitions of Hofman's work, held both in Czechoslovakia and in Italy, and articles commemorating Hofman's 50th, 60th, 70th, and 80th birthdays.

Series IV. Photographs 1907-1954 1.46 linear feet (7 boxes)
The photographs document much of Hofman's career in the theater. There is also an entire volume of costume designs which Hofman created from the film "Anna proletářka" in 1951. The photographs of actual sets and live performances have been arranged seperately in section 4 of box 7 and are also arranged chronologically and labeled, where possible. A small group of large photographs of set designs and architectural projects are housed seperately in box 8.
A small collection of photographs of works in the decorative arts are arranged according to the type of project. The collection contains photographs of both sketches and realized projects. These works are representative of Hofman's early career as part of the Cubo-Expressionist movement in Prague. A number of the works in Series V. are also representative of Hofman's Cubo-Expressionism. The oversized and double-oversized works in Series V. comprise original designs in the decorative arts and architecture. Unless noted, the works are drawings in pencil or ink. The works are also arranged according to type of project. Box 13* contains several designs in the decorative arts for ceramic, wood, and metal objects. Box 14* houses works stemming from Hofman's early career in architecture. Most of the designs, primarily for churches and public projects, date from the early 1910s. Several were created as entries for design competitions, but most of his architectural plans were never realized. Of the architectural drawings in the collection only one is believed to have been constructed (box 14*, folder 4). Some architectural drawings are housed in the Flatfile Folders together with exhibition posters and diplomas.
The biographical photographs of Hofman in Series IV date from various periods in his life and are generally arranged chronologically (several are undated). There are a few early photographs circa 1910 which depict Hofman among his avant-garde friends. Several photographs document Hofman's wife Zdenka, their two daughters, and two grandchildren. There are a number of photographs of Hofman taken in the last years of his life and shortly before his death in 1964.
