A. Ferdinand de Braekeleer was a nephew and pupil of painter Ferdinand De Braekeleer (1792-1883). To avoid name confusion with his uncle, he used the name Adriaan. He chose an artistic career, possibly encouraged by the successful example of his uncle and the favourable prospects that this profession offered him. His brother Jacobus Joannes De Braekeleer became a sculptor.

He painted genre scenes, mainly interiors of inns, kitchens and workshops such as blacksmiths. His oeuvre is situated within romantic realism.

When a tiger escaped from the Antwerp zoo on 7 July 7 1868, it was shot by Adriaan de Braekeleer. The artist turned this heroic act into a painting that is kept at the Zoo.
