    Laurens Craen (c. 1620, The Hague – c.1670, Middelburg ), was a Dutch Golden Age painter.

    According to the RKD he was a fruit and flower still life painter from The Hague who was mentioned there in a letter to Constantijn Huygens and who later moved to Middelburg.[1] His works show such a strong influence from Jan Davidsz de Heem that he is registered in Antwerp in 1645 and was possibly his pupil at that time.[1] He became a member of the Middelburg Guild of St. Luke in 1654 and paid dues until 1663.[1]
