He studied at the University of Munich, where he earned a double degree in mechanical engineering and architecture. His interests turned to art and he attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. After completing his artistic studies, Schutz traveled to the United States in 1924, where he met Joseph Pennell. He assisted Pennell in his classes at the Art Students League, New York, and later became his professional associate. Schutz was commissioned by The New York Times to make etchings of New York and other American cities. He completed a series of illustrations for the magazine section, traveling as far west as San Francisco. Schutz then traveled to Japan, Russia, and China in 1928 and 1929, creating etchings published by both The New York Times and the New York Herald Tribune. The United States Chamber of Commerce commissioned him to create a series of twelve etchings on American cities, which were later reproduced in Nation’s Business. His etchings featuring European and American cities were also included in publications of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Schutz served as the president of the New York Graphic Society and the Louis Icart Society. The graphic works of Anton Schutz are represented in numerous museum collections, including the Library of Congress, New York Public Library, Brooklyn Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, Cleveland Museum of Art, The British Museum, Bibliotheque Nationale de Paris, and Uffizi Galleries (Florence).
