JAN DAVIDSZ. DE HEEM

Utrecht 1606 - 1684 Antwerp
Jan Davidsz. de Heem can be regarded as a connecting link between the Dutch and the Flemish schools of painting. Born in Utrecht, the still life painter in all probability worked in Haarlem under Pieter and Willem Claesz. Heda and then spent his first years of independent activity in Leiden at the same time as the young Rembrandt.

In 1636 he moved to Antwerp, where he spent the greater part of his creative life. He was received as a Master into the Guild of Saint Luke there in 1635–36, and in 1637 was confirmed as a citizen of the city. His new environment and involvement with Flemish art characterised De Heem’s stylistic development. The still lifes he produced there are among the most beautiful the 17th century has to offer.
