In 1922 he immigrated with his family to Israel and settled in Tel Aviv. He studied at the Histadrut Studio under Yitzhak Frenkel. In 1929 he made the first of several visits to Paris to study and exhibit. In 1937 he was the winner of the first Dizengoff Prize, Israel's highest award for an artist. In 1956 he won another. He was one of the founders of the Artist's Colony in Safed. Holzman was a master of watercolor technique and his brilliant depictions of landscapes and cityscapes were highlights of mid-century Israeli art.
