CALRAET, Abraham van
(b. 1642, Dordrecht, d. 1722, Dordrecht)

Still-life with Peaches and Grapes

c. 1680
Oil on canvas, 89 x 73 cm
Mauritshuis, The Hague

Abraham van Calraet was Aelbert Cuyp's principal seventeenth follower. Confusion between the two is compounded by the signature 'A.C.' found on van Calraet's views of Dordrecht, pictures of horsemen, and still-lifes; it is sometimes erroneously accepted as Aelbert Cuyp's own monogram.
