Seemann, Enoch, Jr. (1694-1744)
Enoch Seemann, Jr., born 1694, the son of Enoch Seemann, Sr., was also a painter, specializing in still life. Some of his father's pictures have been erroneously ascribed to him; the subjects of the portraits were no longer living at Enoch's time. He became a well-known portraitist in London, where he painted several members of the royal family. A self-portrait hangs in the Dresden Art Gallery; it is reproduced in Mennonite Life for July 1949. He died in London in 1744.
