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.

The reflections in the silver too. Extraordinarily skillful.
