This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born near Berne, Switzerland in 1826.  By 1845 Emmert was an established artist in New York.  He joined the Gold Rush to California in 1849.  The following year he exhibited in Brooklyn a panorama of the gold mining activities before making his second trip to California late in 1850.  While in California, he operated the Bear Hotel in Sacramento and exhibited the panorama in San Francisco and other communities.  In 1853 he moved to Hawaii where he remained except for visits to California in 1854 and 1858.  His six large lithographs of Honolulu in 1854 are for what he is best known; however,
he also produced detailed India ink landscapes of the Kona coast where he lived for several years.  Emmert died in Honolulu on March 13, 1867.  In:  Bancroft Library (UC Berkeley).

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Switzerland, Paul Emmert emigrated to the United States in the mid 1840s and settled first in New York. After traveling to California, South America, Tahiti, he moved to California in 1850, but shortly after sailed to Hawaii where he settled in Honolulu.

He opened a wood-engraving and lithography shop and bought land in Kona on the Big Island and started a sugar plantation. He was also the caretaker on a nearby estate.

During his life in Hawaii, he created artwork in oil, pencil, and ink, doing many idyllic landscape subjects including the most recognizable landmark, Diamond Head.
