Moving to England from Holland when five years old, van Abbe, became a naturalized citizen. He studied art at the People's Palace, Bolt Court, Toynbee Hall, and later at the Central London School of Art. After working on the art staff of a newspaper he decided to do illustrations for authors such as H.G. Wells and John Galsworthy. However, his greatest skill was displayed in the drypoint medium, because of an uncanny ability to understand human behavior and depict it on paper. His skillful eye possessed a sense of satire and humor in the presentation of legal prints and British middle-class behavior during the early part of the twentieth century.
