(Munich Germany, 1905 - 1982, Salt Lake City, UT)
Louis Heinzman, a German artist from Munich, became a nationally recognized landscape painter. Heinzman began his studies as a youth in the Munich Royal Academy and continued at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and in Rome. Heinzman traveled worldwide to such locales as Egypt, India and the Far East. He later settled in California, where he lived in San Francisco during the 1930s and much of the 1940s. Heinzman painted urban scenes and landscapes - adeptly capturing and celebrating the distinctive landscapes of America’s desert southwest. During World War II, Heinzman painted under the name “Louis M. Hamilton.” Following the war, Heinzman settled in Salt Lake City and began painting the landscapes and locales of Utah. From Salt Lake City to Palm Springs, California, and back again and beyond, Heinzman celebrated the desert effectively in oils on canvas. He was also something of a linguist who spoke and read no less than eight languages.
