German-Swiss classical archaeologist and art historian, the son of sculptor Johannes Pfuhl (1846-1914) and a son-in-law to art dealer Athanasios Rhousopoulos (1823-1898).
In 1923 he published his main work, Malerei und Zeichnung der Griechen; and during the following year, a shortened version was issued ("Meisterwerke griechischer Zeichnung und Malerei"), which was later translated into English by John Beazley and published as "Masterpieces of Greek Drawing and Painting" (1926). In 1946 Hans Möbius took charge of compiling Pfuhl's corpus of Greek grave reliefs — these eventually being published in 1977 as Die ostgriechischen Grabreliefs.
He died on 7 August 1940 in Basel, aged 63.
