Painter, etcher and draughtsman, brother of (1) Geertruydt Roghman. Arnold Houbraken said: ‘He was in his day, with Gerbrand van den Eeckhout, a great friend of Rembrandt van Rijn’. Roghman is usually considered a pupil of Rembrandt in Amsterdam, but there is no documentary evidence, and his style gives little support for this. Houbraken also mentioned that Roghman was blind in one eye. What is certain is that Roghman was familiar with the work of his great-uncle Roelandt Savery and that he travelled a great deal in the Netherlands and probably also through the Alps. A series of etchings of eight Mountainous Tyrolean Landscapes was published in Augsburg (Hollstein, nos 25–32); given their realistic character, it is likely that they were executed after his travels. It is possible but unconfirmable that Roghman also visited Italy, but he is documented in Amsterdam again
