CARMIENCKE, John Hermann, artist, b. in Hamburg, Germany, in 1810; d. in Brooklyn, L. I., 15 June, 1867. He studied art in Germany, and came to the United States in 1848, settling in Brooklyn. He was industrious in the pursuit of his art, and his paintings are faithful delineations of the forms of nature.
