Adolph Heinze (1887 – 1958) was born in Chicago, Illinois on February 5, 1887. He was a student of Karl Albert Buehr, Grant, Snell and later, with William Merritt Chase in New York. He was a member of the Painters and Sculptors of Chicago, the Chicago Gallery Association and the All-Illinois Society of Fine Arts.
Heinze, primarily a landscape painter, exhibited thirteen works at the Art Institute of Chicago between 1925 and 1930. He won awards from the Municipal Art League of Chicago and the Chicago Gallery Association, both in 1927.
Louis W. Hill, owner of the Great Northern Railway, in order to sell the West to the prospective traveler, hired artists, including Adolph Heinze, Charles M. Russell, Joseph Scheuerle, Kathryn W. Leighton and John Fery, to paint Montana’s picturesque Glacier Park scenery. Heinze painted Rocky Mountain landscapes in the 1920’s including Mountain Trail which is in the collection of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, Fort Worth, Texas. Other Heinze paintings are hanging in several high schools: The Cloud Break, John Marshall High School, Chicago; Booth Bay Harbor, Downers Grove High School, Illinois; and Mt. Wilbur, American Fork High School, Utah.
Although Heinze had lived for many years in Downers Grove, Illinois, he passed away on June 11, 1958 in Glenview, Illinois.
