PROPERTY OF A PRIVATE COLLECTOR
It is this more magisterial style that distinguishes his works of the 1650s. His paintings during these years, including the present example, are characterized by a greater monumentality and depth that distinguishes him from the artists of the previous generation; it is in panels such as this that de Heem shows to great effect his enormously influential integration of the colorful Flemish style with the more intimate scale and restrained mood of the northern Netherlands.
Based on photographs, Fred G. Meijer of the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistoriche Documentatie, The Hague, has confirmed this painting to be a work by de Heem which can be dated to circa 1653. It will be included in his forthcoming catalogue raisonné on the artist.
