Walter Launt Palmer (1854, Albany, New York – 1932, Albany, New York) was an American Impressionist painter. Palmer's father Erastus Dow Palmer was a prominent sculptor, and their Palmer residence was frequented by his father's friends, notably landscape painter Frederick E. Church. Church trained Palmer in landscape painting. Palmer's most notable works are winter landscape scenes, a tradition he carried throughout his career.
Palmer works were exhibited in group shows and solo exhibitions throughout his career. Many of his works are collectable and can be found in museums and private collections worldwide.
