Charles Constantin Joseph Hoffbauer (France/MA, 1875-1957) oil on canvas battle scene painting depicting the charge of the French Cuirassiers at Waterloo. Signed upper right, "C. Hoffbauer" and verso. Sight: 35 5/8" x 21 5/8", Framed: 41-3/4" x 27-1/2". Early 20th century. Provenance: Private Nashville collection, purchased from Case Antiques in our July, 2014 auction. Biography: Charles Hoffbauer was born in Paris and studied at L'Ecole Des Beaux-Arts under Fernand Cormon and Gustave Moreau. He exhibited and was recognized at the Paris Salon, winning the Prix National Salon, and won a bronze medal at the Paris Universal Exposition. During the first World War, he was an army artist and a liason to the American camouflage section. Although he painted many subjects, Hoffbauer's battle scenes were to bring him much acclaim. In 1935, he received a commission to paint murals for Battle Abbey, a Confederate memorial in Richmond, Virginia. A commission to paint a mural in the Missouri State Capitol, "Missouri at War," followed. Two years later he became an American citizen and settled in Massachusetts. The Museum of Modern Art in Paris has one of Hoffbauer's battle scenes and he painted "Revolt of the Flemish" for Memorial Hall in Philadelphia. (courtesy Askart). Condition: Overall very good condition. A few miniscule scattered flakes and tiny pin holes, small area of light scattered inclusions upper left corner, some scattered minor craquelure.
