Description: oil on cradled panel, unsigned, unframed.
21 x 28.75 in.
Born in Haarlem, Heda joined the city's Guild of St. Luke in 1631. He is best known for still life paintings such as this example, known as "banquets" or "breakfasts."

We wish to thank Dr. Fred G. Meijer, Senior Curator of Old Dutch and Flemish Painting, Dept. of Collections and Research, RKD, for his assistance in cataloguing this work.

Dr. Meijer notes that this painting is an early copy of one of Heda's works, closely relating to several compositions created in the 1640s.
Collection of George & Böske Antheil, Los Angeles, CA (and by descent to their niece and nephew) Born in Trenton, NJ in 1900, George Antheil was an important avant-garde composer who began his career in Europe in the 1920s. While living in Paris, counted among his friends were James Joyce, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Ernest Hemingway, Eric Satie, and Igor Stravinsky. Antheil's best-known composition is Ballet Mécanique, which was conceived to be accompanied by the film of the same name by experimental filmmakers Fernand Léger and Dudley Murphy and with cinematography by Man Ray.

He returned to the United States in 1936, settling with his wife in Hollywood, CA where he met success as a composer for film and television.
