Still Life with a Gilt Cup, Willem Claesz. Heda, 1635

Still Life with a Gilt Cup, Willem Claesz. Heda, 1635

olieverf op paneel, h 88cm × w 113cm. More details

The range of grey tonalities that Willem Heda could paint is astounding. With this subtle palette, he deftly rendered the objects – of pewter, silver, damask, glass and mother-of-pearl – on this table. A few yellow and ochre accents compliment this refined interplay of colours. Heda specialized in near monochromatic still lifes, so-called ‘tonal banquet pieces’.
