He was married in 1903 in Viborg with Paula Johanne Schjøtt, born 2.7.1872 in Gerlev, Randers County. She died 4.7.1932 in Paris and was the daughter of the priest Frederik Viggo Erik Frisenberg Thorup S and Alvilda Neergaard.

For some years, Valdemar Jørgensen was employed by the Copenhagen porcelain factories and worked here signing artist for underglaze painting. His style was decorative, often japanizing. However, around 1901-02 he went all the way to painting. J. learned fresco in a Belgian monastery and lived a time at the monastery of Monte Cassino, where great frescoes had been performed under the direction of Pater Desiderius. In Paris, he painted portraits and performed numerous watercolors, painted with light hand and often with a free, decorative attitude.
