Conrad Schwiering

1916 - 1986
Painter
Origin: United States
Born: August 8, 1916, Boulder, Colorado
Died: January 1986, California

Conrad Schwiering, raised in Laramie, Wyoming, first fell in love with the Tetons while on a trip with his father. The spectacular view of the Teton Range from the north left a lasting impression on the young boy. Schwiering moved to Jackson with his wife Mary Ethel in 1947. Unlike many artists of the American West, Schwiering was a native of the region. As he stated in an interview several years before his death in 1986, "I am different in that I am a part of the land. I record the things that I know as a way of breathing - a way of living." Schwiering is best known for his dramatic Teton landscapes.
