Rather than training in Munich like so many German painters from America, Frederick John Mulhaupt studied in Paris and exhibited paintings at the National Academy of Moret, France and St. Ives (Cornwall), England. When he returned from Europe, his address was at the Salmagundi Club in NYC. He began summering in Cape Ann around 1900, exhibited in 1917 at the Gallery-on-the-Moors in Gloucester and in that same year Mulhaupt settled in Gloucester and focused on painting its harbors and landscape views.
Known to have a reclusive personality, Frederick John Mulhaupt kept to himself and seriously painted but he did not like to socialize. His major studio was as close to the ocean as it could be, located on pilings in Gloucester Harbor on Rocky Neck and to the studio students flocked.
Frederick John Mulhaupt was a member of the North Shore Art Association from 1923 until his death, where he exhibited many local paintings and held various positions. He became an Associate of the National Academy (1926) and was a member of the National Arts Club, American Art Association in Paris and the Artists Fund Association. Although considered a “post impressionist” the work of Mulhaupt is impressionistic, each stroke juxtaposing the next in color and hue.
