Gabrielle della Faille d'Huysse

Gent 1863 - Deurle 1926

Gabrielle della Faille d’Huysse was a painter and pastellist. As a student of F. Willaert at the Academy of Ghent she preferred to draw and paint views of Ghent, landscapes, interiors, portraits and flowers. She settled in Deurle in 1903 and spent a few years in Sint-Martens-Latem. There she got to know Emile Claus and under his influence, her palette grew brighter and more luministic. In 1924 she was chairwoman of the women’s department of the “Cercle Artistique et Littéraire de Gand”. She signed a few of her artworks with G. Stas de Richelle , G. Stas, Faille or even Bielle.
