Gabrielle de Vaux Clements

American , 1858 - 1948

Clements was a painter and printmaker. She attended the Philadelphia School of Design for Women to study drawing and lithography, and graduated in 1880 from Cornell University. She ran in the artistic circles of Impressionist painters like Ellen Day Hale, and travelled extensively in Europe. She specialized in street scenes, cityscapes and landscapes, usually depictions of the places she had been.
