Frederick Kaemmerer

Biography from the Archives of askART

Dutch, 1839-1902

A student of Jean Leon Gerôme, Frederick Kaemmerer divided his time between Paris and the place of his birth, La Haye.  His early works were often small, highly finished canvases of late 18th-and early 19th-century anecdotal history subjects. 

He debuted with these at the Salon of 1870 and met with considerable public and critical success: Kaemmerer was awarded a medal at the Salon of 1874.  As his career progessed, Kaemmerer's technique became more free, at times approaching an almost impressionist brushstroke.

His success continued during this period, and in 1889 he won a silver medal at the Exposition Universelle and was made Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur.
