Jan Davidsz De Heem was born in Utrecht in 1606.  He first learned to paint from his father, David de Heem.  Between 1626 and 1631 he resided in Leiden, where he came under the influence of David Bailly who specialized in the type of still-life known as vanitas.  Vanitas paintings contain moral messages, frequently on such themes as the fleeting nature of life or the futility of riches, which are conveyed by an arsenal of symbols.  De Heem was to become a distinguished pra (showing 500 of 1039 characters).
