Von Bemmel was born in Nuremberg in 1686, the second son and pupil of Willem van Bemmel. He painted landscapes, and was especially successful in representing thunderstorms and winter scenes. His works are seen in the galleries of the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum and in his native city. He etched six plates of landscapes, and died at Ratisbon in 1754.
