Johannes Hofmeister

A life of art in, with and about nature

Johannes Hofmeister's (1914-1990) scenes from the area surrounding Hjørring are closely linked to the places where he lived throughout his life as an artist. But a Hofmeister landscape is more than that.

It represents something universal about the diminutiveness of man in relation to nature. You see it in Hofmeister's paintings, and you experience it when you stand amid the dramatic landscapes, where he found his scenes, and feel the ever-present wind that has shaped this landscape.
