Jacobus Theodorus "Jacob" Abels (1803–1866) was a Dutch painter.


Abels was born in Amsterdam in 1803. He was a pupil of the animal painter Jan van Ravenswaay. In 1826 Abels had visited Germany, and on his return settled at the Hague.[1] His wife was the daughter of P.G. Os.[2] Between 1849 and 1853 he lived in Haarlem and later he moved to Arnhem.[2]

He was especially noted for his paintings of moonlit landscapes. The Museum at Haarlem has works by him.[1]

Abels died at Abcoude on 11 June 1866.[2]
