Scholder studied at Sacramento City College with Wayne Thiebaud, who exposed him to the Pop art movement and also arranged his first solo exhibition. Scholder's vigorous and confident paint application brings to mind the work of Abstract Expressionists Franz Kline and de Kooning; elsewhere anthropomorphized animal forms and somber portraits recall the dark figuration of Francis Bacon and the edginess of Edvard Munch.

Fritz's awards include fellowships from the Ford, Rockefeller and Whitney foundations. His artwork is in the permanent collections of major museums, including the National Gallery and the National Museum of American Art in Washington and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 2008, the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian mounted an unprecedented dual-city career retrospective in both New York City and Washington, D.C.
