This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ferdinand (Ferd, Fred) Ehrlich (1905-1983)

He was born in Sombor, Hungary in 1905 and moved to Detroit, Michigan when he was six.

In 1929 Fred took classes at the Art Students League in New York.  He filled a sketchbook with over 50 pencil and charcoal drawings of New York City.  Other works from his early career include block prints of scenes from the Long Island waterfront, and watercolor and oil studies of farms on Long Island.

Fred built his career as a commercial artist in New York, running his own business specializing in advertising art and photo retouching.  He did calligraphy including retouching the lettering on original Courier and Ives paintings, and he airbrushed photos for commercial photography for clients like Dentsply.

He lived with his wife Edna, daughter Dorothy, and son Fred, in Little Neck, Long Island.  His studio in New York was on 33 W. 42nd. Street.

Upon retirement, Fred and Edna moved back to Florida, settling in Boca Raton.  Fred spent his time drawing and painting landscapes, and swimming.  He was active in the Boca Raton Museum of Art near his home.  His worked primarily in watercolors during this period, sketching scenes on location and returning to his studio at home to paint.  Other notable works include pen and ink drawings of special places like the Moravian Church he attended, and the cabins of Palmer Point along 4th Lake, New York.  He painted scenes for his friends and family, often adding them, or their name on a mailbox, in the scene.  He also drew cartoons and made cards with pen and ink and color wash. One of his most unusual works done in the early 1980s is a drawing for Carol and Clay Richards of their home and surrounding neighborhood in Washington DC.

Fred Ehrlich died in May 1983.
