Heinrich Pfeiffer was born in Pennsylvania and studied at the Art Students League of New York with traditional landscape painter John Carlson. He continued his studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.

Pfeiffer is best known for his colorful landscapes and coastal views painted in an Impressionist style. Pfeiffer maintained a strong presence in both the Florida and Provincetown, Massachusetts, art communities. The winters were spent in temperate Saint Augustine, Florida, where the artist worked from his studio located within the Old Fatio House garden in the historic downtown. Later in life, Pfeiffer offered outdoor oil and watercolor painting instruction at the Norton Art School in Palm Beach, Florida.
