Willem Kalf (1619 – 31 July 1693) was a Dutch Golden Age painter who specialized in still lifes. Later in his life, Kalf became an art dealer and appraiser.[

Willem Kalf was born in Rotterdam, in 1619.  He was previously thought to have been born in 1622, but H. E. van Gelder’s important archival research has established the painter’s correct place and date of birth.

Kalf was born into a prosperous patrician family in Rotterdam, where his father, a cloth merchant, held municip (showing 500 of 2503 characters).
