1785, Mar 211857, Aug 30
a 19th-century painter and drawer from the Netherlands. Once Mol chose to make a living out of painting, he was tutored by the Haarlem painter Hermanus van Brussel. In 1802 he became a member of the Haarlem drawing society "Tekengenootschap Kunstmin en Vlijt". After he got excited about the Paris Art Museum where many master pieces resided, he obtained permission from his parents and moved there in 1806, provided with recommendations for the floral painter Gerard van Spaendonck who taught at the institute in Paris. But since Mol showed much more interest in historical paintings, he took lessons from Jacques-Louis David and in 1807 he was awarded the Dutch Prix de Rome from King Louis Napoleon of Holland and received a scholarship as "Hollandsch Kweekeling" (Hollandic pupil) to study and work in Paris.
