Johannes Adriaansz. Bemme

1775 Rotterdam – 1841 The Hague

The etcher, Johannes Bemme, was apprenticed to his father, the goldsmith and medal engraver, Adriaan Jansz. Bemme (1753–1831) and later studied in Rotterdam under the por­traitist, August Christian Hauck, as well as the better-known painter and draughtsman, Dirk Langendijk. After his father died, Bemme moved to The Hague, where he worked mostly as a medal maker, although he also had a sideline as a reproductive engraver.
