Conrad Schwiering - '38 


Conrad Schwiering earned his JD from the University of Wyoming but his love was always art, especially painting.

Upon his graduation, Schwiering moved to New York City to study at the Art Students League with some of the nation's best artists, including Charles S. Chapman, Robert A. Graham and Raphael Lillywhite.

After serving in World War II, Schwiering relocated to Jackson Hole so that he could paint the Teton mountains. His dramatic scenes of the ever-changing sights of the Tetons would define his career.

Schwiering has been the subject of several TV shows and newspaper and magazine articles. He was represented by the leading art galleries in the United States, including the Grand Central Art Galleries of New York City. He sold more than 1,000 paintings in his lifetime.
