About Alexander Schramm

Alexander Schramm

Born: Berlin, Germany 1813 – Adelaide, South Australia, Australia 1864 Immigration: Australia from 1849

Alexander Schramm was the leading oil painter in the colony of South Australia during the mid nineteenth century. He had an established reputation in Germany before emigrating to South Australia in 1849.

He painted portraits of colonists, but most of his creative energy was devoted to depicting the Indigenous people of South Australia with great sympathy at a time when Europeans were destroying Indigenous tribal life. Schramm was also the first South Australian artist to depict the distinctive red river gum trees.
