Abraham Bloemaert was born in the Netherlands in 1564. Bloemart studied in Paris for 3 years and was the leading artist in Utrecht for almost half a century. Twice married, he had four sons, and all were painters or engravers.
He is associated with Baroque art, Dutch Golden Age paintings, and the Mannerism art movement. Bloemaert is known for his mythological artwork and Religious paintings. The paintings of Caravaggio influence Abraham Bloemaert's religious art. This is seen in oil paintings of St. John the Baptist, which both artists painted several times. Altarpiece oil paintings by Abraham Bloemaert can be found in Brussels due to commissions from the Catholic Church. Bloemart was a printmaker and engraver. However, he significantly contributed to 17th century Baroque painting as a teacher. Hendrick ter Brugghen was one of Bloemaert's pupils, with famous paintings by Caravaggio central to his teachings.
Famous paintings by Abraham Bloemart include The Flute, painted in 1621 and held by the Centraal Museum in Utrecht.
