Karl Eduard Biermann (1803–92) was a German landscape painter.


He was born in Berlin. He was at first a decorative painter, but afterwards studied landscape in Switzerland, the Tyrol, and Italy, and was one of the founders and most prominent members of the Berlin school of landscape painting. He was for some time a professor in the Berlin Academy. His style has been characterized as in general forceful and harmonious, large in outline, and somewhat decorative in detail.
