Ger./Am. 1887 - 1986
Emil Holzhauer painted on Monhegan Island in the 1940's and 1950's. He came to New York from Germany in 1906 and along with Edward Hopper, Rockwell Kent and George Bellows, studied with Robert Henri. The painting we have for sale is a spectacular watercolor of Blackhead on Monhegan Island.
Holzhauer taught art at the Art Institute of Chicago from 1921 to 1942 and then at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia from 1942 to 1953.
