Biography Paul Jacob Naftel
Considered by some as Guernsey's greatest painter, Paul Jacob Naftel began life in
the family tradition of clock making but turned to painting, becoming a
drawing master to the wealthy ladies of the island. His first important
watercolor was of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert landing at St
Pierre, which is dated August 24, 1846.
In 1847 Naftel replaced John
Henry Matthiason as drawing-master at Elizabeth College, a post which he
was to hold until he left Guernsey in 1870. As a professional he began
to exhibit prolifically in London and following the death of his father
in 1870 began to travel more to the British Isles and the Continent,
