SCHIRMER, JonANN WildrErm (1807-1863), landscape painter, was born in 1807, at Jillich in Rhenish Prussia. This artist, only a namesake of the preceding, had similar aim and career. He first was a student, and subsequently became a professor in the academy of Diisseldorf. In 1854 he was made director of the art school at Carlsruhc, where in 1863 he died. He travelled and sketched in Italy, and aimed at historic landscape after the manner of the Poussins. His Biblical landscapes with figures are held in good esteem.
