Jacques Carabain was a pupil at the Koninklijke Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, where he specialised in depicting cityscapes, marines and river landscapes. Carabain lived and worked in his home town till circa 1856, when he moved to Brussels and later to Schaarbeek. Carabain is regarded as one of the best painters of cityscapes active in the 19th century in Belgium. His subjects were the oldest cities of Belgium and Holland, but also piqturesque cityscapes in Italy, Germany, France and Austria. Due to the diversity of his oeuvre it is often difficult to establish the correct chronology of his works, except when a painting is dated, such as in the work offered here.
