The Tomb of Willem the Silent in an Imaginary Church, Bartholomeus van Bassen

Abraham van Calraet
(1642–1722)

Calraet or Kalraet, baptised on 12 October, 1642 in Dordrecht, the son of a woodcarver, one of six artist brothers, of whom Barendt (1649–1737), and possibly Abraham himself, studied under Cuyp. He was first the pupil of the Huppe brothers, sculptors in Dordrecht, and subsequently practised as a wood-carver and as a painter of still life, stable scenes, landscapes with horses, and some portraits.

In 1680 he married in Dordrecht a daughter of the painter C. Bisschop. He was buried in Dordrecht on 12 June, 1722.
