This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A founder of the Provincetown Art Association and one of the original Provincetown Printers, Tod Lindenmuth was a semi-abstract painter and graphic artist who did much to promote modernist styles.  Although he was much influenced by Abstract Expressionism, his subject matter was realistic enough to be recognizable.  He did linoleum cuts and was one of the first to work with that medium, and towards the end of his life, he experimented with collage.  In the 1930s, he had commissions for the Public Works of Art Project and the Works Progress Administration.

Lindenmuth was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania.  He studied with Robert Henri at the New York School of Art in Manhattan, and in Provincetown with E. Ambrose Webster and George Elmer Browne. 

He first exhibited in Provincetown in 1915, and between 1917 and 1928 served on the jury for the Provincetown Art Association's 'First Modernistic Exhibition".  He exhibited regularly with the Society of Independent Artists in New York. 

He married artist and illustrator Elizabeth Boardman Warren, whom he met in Provincetown, and with whom he had two children.  They were both very active in Provincetown, but in 1934, first visited St. Augustine, Florida where they established a winter studio in the Fatio House on Aviles Street and became very active, respected members of that arts community. 

In 1940, the couple moved permanently to St. Augustine.  "They never owned a car, and sought subjects on long walks around St. Augustine." (83) In 1940, Tod Lindenmuth turned away from graphic arts and focused on landscape painting.  One of his landscapes, Spanish Cedar and Live Oak along the Moat, St. Augustine, depicted a huge tree on an historic site whose excavations showed that St. Augustine had an early role in validating Spanish claims to North America.

In 1940, the Lindenmuths moved their summer studio from Provincetown to Rockport, Massachusetts, and became regular exhibitors of the Rockport Artist Association.  He once said: "the marine subjects of Provincetown and Rockport, Mass., are favorite painting spots but the landscape of the South with its subtle and tropical aspects furnishes a lot of material for the artist, particularly around St. Augustine." (83)

For the remainder of their painting careers, they divided their time seasonally between Rockport and St. Augustine.  In 1968, they retired to Jacksonville, Florida, living in Wesley Manor (Westminster Woods) on Julington Creek. 

Tod Lindenmuth died in Jacksonville in 1976 at age 91.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Josiah Fisk of New Salem, MA. He is the grandson of the artist:

Born in Pennsylvania, Tod Lindenmuth was a painter known for marine and landscape paintings. His heritage was Pennsylvania Dutch, and his father, Arlington Lindenmuth, was also a painter but made his living running a photography studio.

Tod Lindenmuth studied with Robert Henri and was a member of the Salmagundi Club and the Rockport Art Association. He was also active in Provincetown until 1941, and then retired to Florida in the 1960s, having spent his winters there since the 1930s. He was married to Elizabeth Boardman Warren, also a painter.

His primary media was oil, first on canvas and later in his career on masonite. He often made his own frames. Until the mid 1940s, he also created multi-colored block prints.
