Abraham van Dijck

Kwalificaties
schilder, tekenaar
Nationaliteit/school
Noord-Nederlands (school)
Geboren
Dordrecht (stad) 1635
c. 1635. His year of birth is derived from a notarial deed in 1661 in Amsterdam, which states that he is then 25 years old (Saur 2000; De Witt 2020). According to Ecartico he was born in Dordrecht, where his father was born and where his parents got married; Willigen/Meijer 2003, p. 73 states without corroboration: probably born Amsterdam.
Overleden
Dordrecht (stad) 1680-08/1680-08-27
buried on 27 August 1680; the identification by Bredius with an Abraham van Dijk who was buried in Amsterdam on 26 February 1672 is incorrect (Loughman 2006, p. 266, p. 268 and note 12)

Hier wordt vermeld waar de kunstenaar (langere tijd) heeft gewerkt en in welke periode. Ook relevante studiereizen worden hier vermeld.
  • Dordrecht (stad) 1648 - 1651
  • Amsterdam (stad) 1651 - 1654
    De Witt 2020, p. 13; an apprenticeship with Rembrandt is not documented, but on stylistic grounds it is assumed that Abraham van Dijck was apprenticed to Rembrandt around 1650. His earliest signed and dated paintings date from 1655.
  • Dordrecht (stad) 1654 - 1660
    probably returned to Dordrecht in 1654-1655. Based on Terwesten/Hoet 1770, is has wrongly been assumed that he also spent time in Alkmaar, for which is no archival evidence (Loughman 2006, p. 266; De Witt 2020, p. 14).
  • Amsterdam (stad) 1660 - 1661
    returned to Amsterdam in or shortly before 1660 (De Witt 2020, p. 15-17, Loughman 2006, p. 267-268). Although is is not fully impossible that he spent time in England (c. 1662), it is very unlikely. The confusion stems from Houbraken and was adopted by Von Wurzbach and other authors. Beaujean in Saur 2000 rightly assumes that Houbraken apparently confuses Abraham with Anthony van Dyck when he mentions an Abraham van Dijck who painted modern compositions and spent most of his life in England. See also Loughman 2006, De Witt 2020.
  • Dordrecht (stad) 1667 - 1680
    1667 last dated work, died in 1680 (Loughman 2006, p. 266, 273)
