Anker Hoffmann 1904-1985

Anker Hoffmann is a Danish sculptor, born in Holte. He studied art 1923-25​​. He married Fro Vibeke Larsen from Struer in 1927. Hoffmann worked with a naturalistic form, in various materials. The character's posture has a dynamic in a special rythm which creates an artistic statement. His most famous works are the granite well with a young couple in front of Frederiksberg City Hall (1960) and "Etude, siddende pige" (Etude, Seated Girl) (1981) at the Concert Hall of Aarhus.
