Irwin Hoffman

Irwin Hoffman was born, 1901, in East Boston to Russian immigrant parents. He received a scholarship to study at the School of Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In 1924 he was awarded the Paige Traveling Scholarship which allowed him to study art in Europe for two years. There, he studied the art of the old masters. After returning to the United States, Hoffman, maintained a studio on the west side of New York City and concentrated for a while on portrait work. He became interested in the industry of mining, because of his two brothers, and was commissioned to do a series of murals showing the History of Mining for the Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. These murals are now on permanent display at the Colorado School of Mines. His etchings on mining life in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, received good reviews, as well as an exhibit on the people of Mexico and Puerto Rico, at work and play. Hoffman was avidly interested in music and was gifted in the art of making musical instruments, which he gave to an orphanage, and children in Israel. His sincere and concerned attempt to understand the problems and working conditions of people throughout the world can be seen in his art and other areas. Reference: Irwin D. Hoffman an Artist's Life, Boston Public Library, 1982.
