Edmond John Niemann was a landscape painter and watercolorist of German background. He was born in Islington, England in 1813. In his early years he was employed at Lloyds. He devoted himself to art, settling in High Wycombe in a neighborhood in which he found many subjects for his brush.
His works first appeared at the Royal Academy in 1844. He continued there, also at the British Institution, Society of British Artists, and the Academies of Manchester and Liverpool. About 1850, he spent a few years in London and was connected with the National Institution of which he was Secretary and Trustee.
His paintings are in the collections of Museums of Blackburn, Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield, London's Victoria and Albert Museum, and the National Collection at South Kensington.
The artist died in 1876. A collection of forty-one of his works were exhibited at Nottingham Castle in 1878.
