Arthur Meltzer was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he studied at the Minneapolis School of Fine Art with Robert Koehler (1850-1917). He attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia, and studied with Joseph T. Pearson (1876-1951) and Daniel Garber (1880-1958). He won the Academy’s prestigious Cresson Traveling Scholarship in 1921, which enabled him to visit Europe. Meltzer was a member of the Fellowship of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Philadelphia Graphic Sketch Club, the Philadelphia Art Alliance, and the Society of Mystic Artists, Connecticut.

Meltzer's works have been exhibited at the Carlisle Art Museum, Pennsylvania, the Columbus Gallery of Fine Arts, Ohio, Storrs College, Connecticut, (now the University of Connecticut), the Athletic Club, Chicago, the Philadelphia Art Alliance, and the Woodmere Art Gallery, Philadelphia. Meltzer taught at the Moore College of Art in Philadelphia from 1925 to 1949. It was there that he met his future wife of sixty-one years, the noted art teacher and painter Paulette van Roekens (1896-1988). After Meltzer retired he continued to paint at his residence in Huntingdon Valley.

This snowy winter view of a typical barn in Bucks County remains in its original frame that Meltzer designed and made.
