Beyeren worked inTheHague, painting still lifes (including fish against a sea background) and seascapes. His early still life works are simple and democratic, marked by the clearness of their composition and the sensitive rendering of material objects (Luncheon, Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow); his later still lifes became effective colorful compositions of rare viands and costly utensils (Dessert, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam).
