Harry Holtzman was born in New York, and studied at the Art Students League under Hans Hoffman. In the early 1930s Holtzman traveled to Paris where he met the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872-1944), and in 1940 sponsored Mondrian's immigration to the United States. From 1950 to 1975 Holtzman taught at Brooklyn College. He was the author and editor of several books on Mondrian and was executor of the painter's estate.
