Joh. G. Wertheim

From Banker to Sculptor

Destined to become a banker, Johan G. Wertheim (1898 – 1977) made an unexpected decision to venture into the world of sculpture. He was awarded the Prix de Rome and embarked on a successful career sculpting portraits and monuments. Wertheim was also founder of Openbaar Kunstbezit, a Dutch foundation that championed the popularisation of art.
