Conrad Wimmer was born in Vienna on June 15, 1844 and died in Munich on June 17, 1905. Wimmer is considered a painter, engraver and watercolorist from the German school.

His main subjects landscapes and marine scenes. Conrad Wimmer received his formal art training from Peter Johann Nepomuk Geiger (1805-1880) at the Vienna Academy.

In 1862, he traveled to Dusseldorf to study landscape painting. While in Dusseldorf, Wimmer  met fellow student Ludvig Munthe (1841-1896). Although, Munthe and Wimmer were very close in age, Munthe had a more mature approach to landscape painting and he became the single largest influence on Wimmer‘s development as an artist. They traveled the countryside painting winter and autumnal landscape full of natural beauty and atmosphere.

Wimmer then traveled to Paris to exhibit in the Salons. While is France, Wimmer added a more sensitive approach to his landscapes. These subtle changes to his palette helped him win a first class medal at the Universal Exposition of 1878. Wimmer also exhibited in Vienna, Berlin, Amsterdam and London.  In 1872, he was awarded the gold medal at an exhibition in Berlin and he was awarded a medal in both the 1876 and 1894 exhibitions in Vienna. Wimmer continued his successes in London and Amsterdam.
