Luxembourg artist who painted portraits and landscapes in the Impressionist style. He was the first Luxembourger who managed to live from art alone. His masterpiece is generally considered to be his portrait of a fair-haired girl.
Seimetz first worked as a house painter and decorator until the industrialist Antoine Pescatore noticed his artistic talents and provided support for his education. In 1875, he began his studies in Brussels, continuing at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts (1879–1881) and finally at the French Academy (1881–1887).
Seimetz was regarded as something of an eccentric with his full moustache, small beard and curly hair, his floppy hat and flowing clothes. He died in Limpertsberg, Luxembourg City, on 26 October 1934, aged 76.
