Abraham van Beyeren (Dutch, 1620 / 1621 - 1690)
Born and trained in The Hague, Abraham van Beyeren led a restless life. He worked in his hometown as well as Leiden, Delft, Amsterdam, Alkmaar, Gouda, and Overschie, where he died. Van Beyeren started out as a painter of seascapes but from the early 1650s onwards, he turned to still lifes. Best known for his paintings showing fish, he is also one of the most important Dutch painters of ‘pronkstillevens’ (Dutch for ‘sumptuous still lifes’).
