Known for serene, realistic landscapes, he was a widely exhibited painter who won numerous awards including the J. Francis Murphy Memorial Prize from the National Academy of Design in 1928. Many of his paintings convey a sense of panorama and lead the eye into deep vistas.

Wuermer was born in Munich, Germany, and in 1915, immigrated to Chicago where from 1920 to 1924, he studied at the Art Institute with Wellington Reynolds. He then went to New York City for study at the Art Students League.   In 1929, the Grand Central Art Galleries in New York City accepted him for artist membership.

His technique for painting was similar to that of the Pointillists although the final effect was much more exact and realistic. He slowly built up the paint on his canvas by using dots of color.
