Mirjam Jacobson (Portrait by Sim Gokkes, 1932)


Dutch engraver, graphic designer, painter and draftswoman.

She was a daughter of the banker Isaac Jacobson and Betty Goldschmidt. She was a pupil of Johannes Hendricus Jurres, Simon Maris and Willem Retera, among others.

Jacobson drew and painted still lifes (flowers), portraits and life figures and made bookplates. She also gave drawing and painting lessons. In the 1930s she drew portraits of famous Jews for The Jewish weekly (Dutch: De Vrijdagavond), including actress Esther de Boer van Rijk, composer Sim Gokkes, Prof. Juda Lion Palache, actor Elias Prague and theater director Abraham Tuschinski.

In 1932, at the age of 44, she married the merchant Izaäk Cohen Bendiks (1878-1945), founder of a coffee trading company. Jacobson was arrested in late 1942 and sent to Camp Westerbork. She and her husband died in early 1945, a month after another in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. A fund was established at the State Academy in her memory.
