Davisz de Heem, Jan
Jan Davisz de Heem is one of the greatest Baroque painters of still life in Holland. His most numerous and characteristic artworks are arrangements of fruits, metal dishes, and wine glasses; compositions of books and musical instruments; and examples of the popular "vanity of life" theme, with such symbolic articles as skulls and hourglasses. In some of Jan Davisz de Heem's oil paintings the name of his father, David I de Heem, is joined to his own. His son, Cornelis de Heem, was not quite the equal of Jan, but many of his oil paintings are preserved in museums in The Hague, Vienna, and elsewhere. Jan's younger brother, David Davidsz. de Heem, and Jan's eldest son, David Jansz. de Heem, were also well-known oil painters.
