Hendrik Abbé was a Flemish painter, engraver and architect.[1]

Life[edit]

Abbé was baptized in 1639 in the cathedral at Antwerp. Some prints by him were published in Antwerp in 1670.[1] An edition of Ovid's Metamorpheses, published by Francois Foppens in Brussels in 1677, was partly illustrated with plates by other engravers after drawings by Abbé.[2]
