This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following additional  information was submitted by Cornelia C. Moynihan in May of 2006:

Emmett Fritz 1917-1995  New York/Florida

Emmett Fritz was born John Emmett Fritz October 13, 1917 in Kansas City and died in Florida on November 29, 1995.  He studied at Pratt Institute in 1937, and  studied briefly with the noted Norman Rockwell. He painted landscapes in New England through the late 1930's and 1940's, and also worked as an illustrator and as cartoonist for the comic strip "Roxie West".

In 1950, he left New York and moved to St. Augustine, Florida, where he became an active and much-loved member of the thriving artists' community. A prolific painter in both oil and watercolor,  Fritz had great success in his own colorful impressionist style depicting Carribbean islands and particularly street scenes of St. Augustine and Palm Beach.

One of his paintings is featured in the Lightner Museum publication Lost Colony: The Artists of St Augustine, 1930-1950 by Robert W Torchia, and in 2004, a major retrospective show "Emmett Fritz Memorial Exhibit" was sponsored jointly by the St Augustine Art Association and the St Augustine Historical Society.  His work is in a number of museums and private collections, including the collection of King Juan Carlos of Spain. He is also listed in the publication Coast to Coast by Gary Libby and other references.
