About Hendrik Breems

Imigrated briefly to America and worked as a painter at the Paterson Gas Works, which trade he continued when returning to Holland most likely in 1921, but possibly even in 1922. He eventually became a expert in mixing colors, which was very important when painted surfaces were damaged on the luxury passenger ships of the "Nederland Line" (Maatschappij Nederland) where he worked until his retirement. In due time he became the manager of the painting shop of the company.
