This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Frederick Heppner Buchholz was born in 1901 in Springfield, MA, and from an early age (in high school) began painting with local painters.
During the Great Depression, he managed to overcome the economic situation and with little support, made it to New York City. There he enrolled in the Art Students League under the tutelage of Kenneth Hayes Miller (1876-1952).

When Buchholz's funds ran out and he couldn't afford to continue his studies, he began to work. He started out at a printing company and then a designer for a textile firm, where his speciality was blanket designs. This work supported him throughout the 30s and early 40s and allowed him to continue to paint without financial help from the Federal Arts Projects.

In 1922, he met and married another young artist and together they opened a tea shop in Greenwich Village. This soon became a popular place for many artists and intellectuals to meet and converse. The constant development of New York City influenced him to paint his surroundings and address social realist themes in his work. Buchholz also depicted circus inspired scenes.

Buchholz became an active member in the Society of Independent Artists, which was founded so that artists could exhibit modernist artwork without restrictions of jury selection, style, or subject matter. Buchholz exhibited with SIA from 1922 until 1944.

Buchholz is among the American artists who flourished during the Great Depression and the early 20th century, and who is now receiving renewed appreciation. He provided insight into American urban life at this time of constant change. His style has been praised for "his strong angles, powerful bisected compositions and bold color."
