German painter known as "The Szczecin Painter" or "The Pomeranian Painter" who created silent, melancholic landscapes, with certain echoes of the work of Caspar David Friedrich.
Wimmer was the son of a Szczecin bookbinder. After the end of his schooling in 1891, he first worked in an insurance office. Soon afterwards he took drawing lessons with the painter and graphic artist Reinhold Hoberg, who was living in Szczecin at the time. From 1897 he studied at the Berlin Art Academy, where he devoted himself in particular to the painting technique of the Old Masters. During his studies he undertook an educational trip to Italy with stops in Rome and Florence. Later he also attended the Munich Academy of Arts.
He died on 22 March 1964 in Kiel.
