Willem Claeszoon Heda (December 14, 1594, Haarlem - c. 1680, Haarlem) was one of the earliest Dutch Golden Age artists devoted exclusively to the painting of still lifes.

Final years

Het Monochrome Banketje

Heda’s final years saw the artist begin the transition from the late breakfast still-life paintings he helped create, to the pronk, or display, still-life pieces of Willem Kalf in Amsterdam. His last known works were painted in 1664 (Private collection, The Hague) and 1665 (Museum del Monte, Brussels), and contained the warmer pallette of browns associated with Kalf’s pieces. Though he lived until the 1680s, Heda’s last known paintings we created in the 1660s. Heda died in Haarlem in 1680 or 1682.
