Artists Biography

Jacques Francois Carabain

Belgian 1834-1933
Jacques François Carabain was a painter of landscapes and architectural street scenes. He was born in Amsterdam, Holland in 1834 but he later changed his nationality and became a Belgian citizen.

He studied under Doyer and V. Bing at l’Academie d’Amsterdam and travelled widely throughout France, Italy and Germany before finally settling in Belgium. The Museum of Y’Pres holds his painting entitled “The Grand Place of Brussels” and the Museum Rudolfinum in Prague holds his work “Sight of Poggiodomo”.

Carabain is one of the most eminent painters of this subject during the 19th Century. He travelled widely and has left representations of a number of the principal cities and towns in Holland, Belgium and many of the centres and picturesque villages within the bounds of Europe. In 1889 he travelled to Australia with his Amsterdam-born wife, where he also painted. Whilst there they met up with their three sons and daughter-in-laws and then travelled home via the US.

Carabain’s compositions are noted for their intensity of palette and excellent brushwork.
