Hollerbach immigrated to the United States in 1949 and settled on the Upper West Side of New York City, where he resided until his death in 2021. Along with being his home, the Upper West Side served as his inspiration and was the source of many of his paintings. Among other subjects, he was drawn to painting the inner solitude of city dwellers as they went about their daily business.
