A native of Innsbruck, Austria, Franz Richard Unterberger studied at the Munich Academy with history painter Clemens von Zimmermann (1788–1859) and landscape painter Julius Lange (1817–1878). At the Weimar Academy he studied with Albert Zimmermann (1808–1888) and at the Düsseldorf Academy with Andreas Achenbach (1815–1910) who introduced him to the technique of plein air painting. Unterberger traveled extensively in Europe, painting in Denmark, Norway, and along the English and Scottish coast. In 1864, he moved to Brussels, spending the summers in Neuilly-sur-Seine near Paris. From there he made frequent trips to Venice, Southern Italy and Sicily. Unterberger exhibited some of his Italian views in Vienna in 1874. He also exhibited at the National Academy of Design in 1874, at the Chicago Interstate Industrial Exposition in 1876 and two of his paintings were shown at the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia. His paintings are in the Fernandium in Innsbruck, the museum of Troyes, France, the National Gallery of Australia in Melbourne, the Walker Art Collection in Minneapolis and in the Drexel Institute in Philadelphia.
