Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Gabriel Metsu was a Dutch painter, active in his native Leiden, and then in Amsterdam, where he had moved by 1657. Art historian Houbraken says that Metsu trained with Dou, but Metsu's early works are very different from his - typically historical and mythological scenes, broadly rather than minutely painted.

Metsu also painted portraits and still-lifes, but his most characteristic works are genre scenes, some of which rank among the finest of their period. He concentrated on scenes (showing 500 of 904 characters).
