NoteThe Haarlem painter Gerrit Willemsz Heda was the son and pupil of Willem Claesz Heda, whose style he took over and developed further. With Pieter Claesz his father Willem Claesz Heda was the founder of the so-called "Monochromen Banketjes". These are meal still lifes, whose reduced coloring emanates from a dominant tone. To this around 1620/30 developed genre also belongs our 1646 created still life, which is one of his earliest dated works.

Various objects are spread out on a table top, including a Chinese porcelain bowl with butter, a filled wine glass, a Raeren earthenware jug, a pewter plate with herring, a knife, a lying tin tazza and a piece of bread. The arrangement impresses with its calmness and simplicity. The objects presented are not sumptuous, but rather belong in a bourgeois environment, which the painter also emphasizes by the choice of its colors. On the other hand, the painterly precision of both the outlines and the light reflections on the surface of different materials such as porcelain, clay, fabric or glass captivates. Gerrit Heda's virtuoso handling of light and color, outline and overall arrangement stands out on this meal image.
