Werner Hofmann versteht es hervorragend, die Zeichen der Zeit in den Äußerungen der Künstler aufzuweisen und zu deuten. Schon der Band »Zeichen und Gestalt«, der sich der Malerei des 20. Jahrhunderts widmet, legt dafür Zeugnis ab. Hofmanns Ausführungen über die Plastik des 20. Jahrhunderts ergänzt auf eine eigenständige Weise die in dem Werk über die moderne Malerei niedergelegten Erkenntnisse und verschafft darüber hinaus einen umfassenden Überblick über das bildhauerische Schaffen bis Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts.
