Edmund John Niemann (1813–1876).
Niemann was a prolific and highly successful British landscape artist working mostly in oils. He was born in London in 1813 and his father, John Diedrich Niemann, was a native of Westphalia and a member of LLoyd’s. As a young man, Edmund was employed as a clerk at there also.
In 1839 he decided to leave and devote himself, choosing to settle in Buckinghamshire, and paint en plain air. He especially relished painting the scenery of the Thames and also the River Swale near Richmond in Yorkshire.
Between 1844 and 1872, Niemann exhibited his works at a wide range of prestigious galleries including the Royal Academy the British Institution the Society of British Artists in Suffolk, the Royal Scottish Academy the Royal Institute, the Glasgow Institute, the Paris Salon, the Liverpool Academy of Arts and the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts . The first picture exhibited was a view "On the Thames, near Great Marlow, Bucks" – a small canvas shown at the Royal Academy in 1844.
Niemanns paintings are characterised by great versatility, natural colours, and visual realism, often in the romantic artistic style of J.M.W Turner, Caspar David Friedrich and Corot. His son, Edward H. Niemann, was also a painter imitating his father's style. Ill for a number of years in his later life, Niemann died suddenly at Brixton Hill Surrey of apoplexy on 15 April 1876.
