PAUL JOSEPH CONSTANTIN GABRIEL (Dutch / 1828-1903)

Paul Joseph Constantin Gabriel was born in Amsterdam. His father, a sculptor, died when Paul Gabriel was just five years old, leaving a widow and a large family. Paul Gabriel was initially apprenticed to a furniture maker, but this was not a success. Finding he could earn money by painting portraits, Gabriel decided to become an artist, taking evening classes at the Amsterdam Academy under various teachers including Barend Cornelis Koekkoek. From 1853-1856 Gabriel lived in the artistic colony at Oosterbeek, near Arnhem, where he became friends with Anton Mauve, who profoundly influenced his work. From 1860 to 1884, Paul Gabriel lived in Brussels, leading many of his contemporaries to regard him as a Belgian rather than Dutch artist
