Portrait of Gabriël by Woutherus Mol, 1818, now in the Rijksmuseum

Paul Joseph Gabriël, a painter and sculptor, was born at Amsterdam in 1785. He learned sculpture from his father and Canova, and devoted himself principally to that branch of art; but he at first practised miniature painting, and in his twentieth year proceeded to Paris specially to improve himself therein. In 1820 he was made a member of the Institute at Amsterdam, and director of the Royal Academy there. He died at Amsterdam in 1833.
