Very special portrait photo of a girl, by Adolphe Zimmermans

Adolphe Zimmermans, actually Bernard Eugène Adolphe Temmerman (The Hague, April 2, 1858 – there, July 2, 1922) was a Dutch court photographer.

The photo studio Adolphe Zimmermans specialized in portrait photography, cartes de visites and cabinet photos. The logo on the passe-partout probably dates from around 1902. His clientele belonged to the upper classes. Zimmermans made portraits of members of the Royal Family, including Princess Wilhelmina in the "little Amalia van Solms costume" (1891). From 1892 he was allowed to call himself purveyor to Queen Regent Emma. One of Zimmerman's later portraits of Wilhelmina was used to design postage stamps released after her inauguration (in 1899, 1905, 1998 and 2009). He became the owner of a Benz Victoria in 1896 , making him reportedly the first car driver in the Netherlands
