A pupil of Charles Meryon (1821-1868), Gabrielle Marie Niel is noted for her etched views of old Paris and other cities, Italy and Algeria. She first exhibited in the Salon in 1866 and was active until after 1875. Niel’s work, showing the influence of her teacher, exhibits her talent for depicting urban scenes. Her views of old Paris and Algeria were published by Alfred Cadart (1828-1875), the noted publisher of etchings, and others of her etched views were published in the journal L’Art.
