Abraham van Linge (flourished 1623-42) probably followed his older brother Bernard (1598-c.1644) to England in 1623. Both were from Emden, East Frisia, where both their father and grandfather were masters of the Emden glaziers’ guild. His work is better represented than that of his brother, although less well documented. As a result there are debates over the precise attribution of works between the brothers, whose work is particularly prominent in a number of Oxford Colleges.
