This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Adolph Heinze, born in Chicago in 1887, studied landscape painting under Karl Buehr and later was a student of William Merritt Chase. He was a member of the All-Illinois Fine Artists Association, Chicago Palette and Sculptors, and Chicago Gallery Association, where he exhibited in 1927. Heinze also exhibited at the Municipal Art League.

Heinze’s work caught the attention of Louis W. Hill, President of the Great Northern Railway, and in 1928, Hill instructed the Great Northern Advertising Agent, W.R. “Bob” Mills to contract Heinze for landscape paintings of National Park that would be used to illustrate the 1929 Great Northern Railroad Calendars, produced monthly at that time. The Railway hired many artists to capture the “Swiss Alps” of America and sell it to prospective travelers from the East to bring them west through the “See America First Campaign.” Because of the Railroad’s advertising efforts, artists were able to come west, experience the grandeur of the Glacier peaks and majestic lakes, while earning a living wage. Artists such as Winold Reiss, John Fery, Joseph Scheuerle as well as photographers and authors were hired by the Railway for the “See American First Campaign.” Winold Riess’s portraits of Blackfeet Indians were used on the Railway’s 1928 calendar series but the railroad officials thought to employ a little variety in the subject matter of the calendars and not overdo the Blackfeet motif. Heinze did complete works for the 1929 calendar series but his paintings did not reproduce satisfactorily, and so the Railroad went back to Reiss’s portraits for the following year.

Heinze completed many western landscape paintings including major works of Glacier Park, its lodges and famous red buses, the Rocky Mountains and Wyoming’s “Grand Tetons”. It has been said that the mountains did not suit him well and he returned after a short while to Illinois.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Adolph Heinze, born in Chicago in 1887, became a landscape painter who studied there with Karl Buehr and later was a student of William Merritt Chase. He was a member of the All-Illinois Fine Artists Association, Chicago Palette and Sculptors, and Chicago Gallery Association, where he exhibited in 1927. He also showed at the Municipal Art League.

Louis W. Hill, owner of the Great Northern Railway, in order "to sell the West to the prospective traveler," hired artists including Adolph Heinz, Charles. M. Russell, Joseph Scheuerle, Kathryn W. Leighton, and John Fery, to paint Montana's picturesque Glacier Park scenery.

Heinze painted Rocky Mountain landscapes in the 1920s, including "Mountain Trail", oil, 30" x 24", c. 1928, in the collection of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad of Fort Worth, Texas.
