A Dutch Breakfast [Apr. 12th, 2013|04:34 pm]
Tony Grist


I'm browsing through galleries of Dutch Golden Age art. This chap, Willem Claeszoon Heda, specialized in painting breakfast. I guess it's hard to put a man who only painted breakfast in the same exalted category as Rembrandt and Vermeer but, even so, isn't this a fabulous piece of work! I want some of that pie.

Many still life paintings have a certain melancholy about them- an element of the Vanitas. Your breakfast is transitory; it will not come again; you can't have your pie and eat it.

I'd rather have the silver coffee pot myself.

This is so beautiful. That lemon especially gets me, and the crust on the pie.

The reflections in the silver too. Extraordinarily skillful.
