Dutch painter. He painted seascapes as well as
fruit, flower, fish, game and banquet still-lifes.
He almost always signed these works with his
monogram AVB, but
he dated only a few. This, together with the
fact that he painted diverse subjects
simultaneously and his style changed little,
makes it difficult to establish a chronology. He
became a master in The Hague in 1640 and was
related by marriage to the fish painter Pieter
de Putter (before 1600–59). Van Beyeren lived in
Delft from 1657 to 1661 and was again in The
Hague between 1663 and 1669. He was then
recorded in Amsterdam, Alkmaar and Gouda before
settling in Overschie in 1678.
