Albert Flamm (1823-1906) was a German landscape painter, lithographer and architect, born at Cologne. He first studied architecture at the Dusseldorf Academy from 1836 to 1838 and worked in that profession until 1840, when he turned to painting.  He then became a pupil of Andreas Achenbach at the Düsseldorf Academy, and in 1900 became a professor at the Academy. 

Flamm became even more closely associated with Achenbach when the professor's brother, Oswald Achenbach, married Flamm's sister.
From 1850 to 1853, Albert Flamm made several trips to Italy, and there found the subject matter of Italian scenery, which became his signature work.  Rome with its warm, bright sunlight was of special interest, but he also spent time in southern Italy.  Oswald Achenbach, also noted for Italian landscape painting, traveled with Flamm on at least one of these excursions.

One of his most well-known paintings is the Approaching Storm in the Campagna (1862). Among others may be mentioned Via Appia, in the Kunsthalle at Hamburg, a fine Italian Landscape (1856), in the Ravené Gallery, Berlin, and View of Cumæ (1881), in the National Gallery in Berlin.

In 1900 the title of professor was conferred upon him.
