Louis Heinzman (1905-1982) was born in Munich, Germany, and became known for his serene, sunlit vistas, desert and mountain landscapes, as well as portraits. He studied at an early age at the Munich Royal Academy and then continued in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He also studied in Rome. He traveled worldwide including Egypt, India, the Far East, American Southwest and California in the 1930s and 40s, and was reportedly proficient in eight languages. During World War II, he used the pseudonym Louis Hamilton because of anti-German sentiment. Following the war, he settled in Salt Lake City where he lived until his death in 1982.
