Abraham Hendrickz van Beyeren Biographyc.1620-1690
Dutch Baroque Painter
Unfortunately Van Beijeren signed his canvases with the monogram AVB and invariably failed to include a date. As a result it has been difficult to compile a chronology of his works.
While in the 1640s most of his paintings were seascapes, Van Beijeren began to develop as a skilled still life painter of fish. In the 1650s and 1660s he focused on still lifes with fine silverware, Chinese porcelain, glass and selections of fruit. He also painted a number of floral still life paintings.
