Amos Gable

 (1840 - 1913)
Amos Gable was active/lived in United States.  Amos Gable is known for portrait painting.

Amos Gable

The following information was submitted by Stephanie Frederick, a descendent of the artist:

Amos was born on February 2, 1840 and died January 7, 1913.  He started out working full-time as a barber and used portrait painting only as a supplemental income until he could afford to pursue it as his sole career.  A great deal of Amos' subjects were actually post-mortem, as he was hired by loved ones to immortalize them with the brush.  I had always been told that Amos did achieve a nominal amount of fame for his talents, but I have a difficult time finding any mention of him anywhere outside the city of Reading, Pennsylvania (his home town).
