Biography

Edward Buk Ulreich (February 12, 1884 – July 17, 1966) was an American artist. Born in Hungary, his work includes murals at the United States Courthouse (Tallahassee, Florida, 1936) completed in 1939. His work is also at the National Museum of American Illustration.

The U.S. Courthouse in Tallahassee's main lobby is decorated with eight murals by Ulreich illustrating scenes from Florida's history. The murals were funded by the Treasury Department's Section of Painting and Sculpture, a New Deal program that commissioned artists. Ulreich won a competition to paint the murals, which he completed in 1939. He also painted Southwestern motifs and worked as an illustrator.
