In the early 1630s Heda began to use the compositional structures. He placed the white tablecloth on the left or right-hand edge of the table, so that the middle of the table is not covered and is no longer symmetric. In subsequent 'banketjes' (banquet pieces), the tablecloth was pushed further and further aside as early as 1638 in Heda's paintings until it was actually crumpled. Whereas for quite some time food was shown as almost untouchable, precious and just for display, increasing traces of consumption are now visible. The objects were no longer merely intended to embody status-defining values, but became evidence of spontaneous acts which disrupted the festive structures of the framework.
Style: Dutch Baroque Era.
School: Dutch Baroque.
