Gabriel Perelle, French artist; 1604-1677, studied under Daniel Rabel and started making etchings in 1635; his work showed the influence of Flemish landscape artists. Although he etched prints after masters such as Poussin, Paul Bril, Asselyn and Silvestre, he mainly worked from his own drawings. Many of his etchings were published by Europe's two most influential publishing houses; Visscher, in Amsterdam, and Mariette, in Paris.
