Jozef Israels. - A version of the motif 'Als men oud wordt', dated 1883, is in the collection of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague. - Dutch painter and graphic artist, one of the main exponents of the Hague painting school. He was taught drawing in Groningen before studying painting in the studio of J. A. Krusemann since 1840. At the same time he took evening lessons under J. W. Pienemann at the Amsterdam academy. Unsatisfied by academic lessons in Amsterdam he went to Paris, accompanied by J. van Koningsveld, where they studied under J. Pradier, H. Vernet and P. Delaroche.

Since the mid 1850s he turned to subjects from the life of fishermen, and the expression of mental impulses became most important.
