Born in 1931 and growing up in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn, as a youth, George Gabin showed a precocious talent in art, beginning his formal studies at the School of Brooklyn Museum. While still in high school Gabin won a scholarship to study at the Museum of Modern Art and was included in an exhibition at the museum a short year later. (More)
