Not to be confused with Adriaen Bloemaert, Abraham Blommaert was a Dutch landscape painter from  Middelburg.  Researchers have found at least 77 landscape paintings attributed to Adriean Bloemaert that are now linked to Abraham Blommaert.

Characteristic of Abraham Blommaert's landscapes "are the clear atmosphere, the surprising touches of colour and the finely drawn silhouettes of people, animals and trees. These are highly innovative, almost precursors of the nineteenth-century German Romantics.  The splendid calligraphic signature seems to suggest Blommaert’s occupation as schoolmaster.  And the 1770 description of his work as ‘vividly and nicely painted’ is indeed a fitting characterization of the paintings of Abraham Blommaert, this artistic teacher from Middelburg."

He appears to have been born in Middelburg around 1626. I n the financial year of 1657/1658 Blommaert paid his enrollment fee for the St Luke’s guild at Middelburg and registered as an artist painter.  In subsequent years the archives regularly mention his name, consistently associating him with two professions: painter and schoolmaster.  Until 1671 Abraham Blommaert continued to pay his St Luke’s guild fees. But then affairs took a turn for the worse. Indeed, in 1675 he was summonsed by the town treasurer of Middelburg for failing to pay his property tax for the years 1672/1674.  Not long after, he was dead. In 1679 his wife is mentioned as a widow.
