Gabriel ,METSU(January 1629 , Leiden - buried Oct 24 , 1667)

Gabriel Metsu (January 1629 , Leiden - buried Oct 24 , 1667 , Amsterdam ), Dutch painter , was the son of the Flemish painter Jacques Metsu (c.1588-1629), who lived most of his days at Leiden, where he was three times married. The last of these marriages was celebrated in 1625, and Jacomijntje Garniers, herself the widow of a painter with already three children, gave birth to Gabriel.
According to Houbraken Metsu was taught by Gerard Dou , though his early works do not lend colour to this assertion. He was influenced by painters in Leiden like Jan Steen and Jan Lievens .

Metsu was registered among the first members of the painters' corporation at Leiden; and the books of the gild also tell us that he remained a member in 1649. In 1650 he ceased to subscribe, and works bearing his name and the date of 1653 give countenance to the belief that he had then settled at Amsterdam . In Leiden it was told Metsu left a brothel at six in the morning and took a prostitute to the Academia . Before he moved to Amsterdam Metsu was trained in Utrecht by Jan Baptist Weenix and Nicolaus Kn¨¹pfer .

Metsu lived in an alley on Prinsengracht, where he held chickens. He got into an argument with a neighbor and moved to a house on the canalside, where a daily vegetable market was held. He married in 1658 Isabella de Wolff, whose father was a potter, her mother a painter. ( Pieter de Grebber , a religious painter from Haarlem was her brother). Around the year 1661 Metsu won the protection of the Amsterdam cloth merchant Jan J. Hinlopen and painted his family more than once in a fashionable surrounding. After Metsu died his widow left for Enkhuizen , to live with her mother.
