Petrus Johannes Arendzen
Petrus Johannes Arendzen; 1846-1932, Dutch etcher and engraver, came to England from Amsterdam in 1873, where he was commissioned by the Dutch Government to reproduce in a different medium, the large number of Dutch paintings that were in English collections. His friend, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, who had already arrived in England, found the house in Quex Road, London, where Petrus set up home with his wife. Many of Petrus works are held by the Rijksmuseum.
