Biography Abraham van Beyeren
Abraham van Beyeren (Dutch, 1620-1690) was mostly active in his native city of the Hague but he lived in nearby Delft from 1657 to 1663 and in Amsterdam from 1669 to 1674. He was obviously familiar with still-life painting in several art centers. The exotic vessels and delicacies seem equally well suited to the tastes of Amsterdam patricians and of courtiers at the Hague.
He was the pre-eminent artist of fish still lifes but was also celebrated for his 'pronk' still life.
