German veduta and landscape painter, whose life and work are closely linked to his birthplace Halberstadt and the northern Harz foothills. His prolific artistic output (around 6000 artworks) earned him the nickname "chronicler with pen and brush."
In 1926 Gemm and his childhood friend Wilhelm Pramme went on a world tour which ended in Tyrol.
With the outbreak of the Second World War, Gemm was drafted into the Wehrmacht. Between 1939 and 1941 he took part in the French campaign as well as in the war against the Soviet Union. However, he was temporarily released from active service and used exclusively as a war painter.
A close friendship connected the painter throughout his life with the Halberstadt-based Walter Mahlke, master photographer, and with the writer Bert Brennecke. Gemm died in Osterwieck on 17 March 1973 at age 74.
