A pupil of Jean-Léon Gérôme in Paris, Frederik Hendrik Kaemmerer shared his life between The Hague and Paris. Participating in the Paris Salon from 1870, he obtained a medal in 1874 and a silver medal at the Exposition Universelle in 1889. He was appointed Knight of the Legion of Honor the same year.
He achieved considerable success for his extremely finished small paintings representing the subjects of the Directory or the First Empire. His wonderful works were highly appreciated by American customers. At the end of his life, his way of painting became free and showed a speed of execution which brought him closer to the Impressionists.
