Art for Reason's Harvest: Willem Claesz Heda's "Breakfast Table with Blackberry Pie"

Nationality: Dutch
Born-Died: 1594-1680

Creation Date: 1631
Size: 21.3 x 32.3 in. (54 x 82 cm)
Media: Oil on panel
Location: Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, Dresden, Germany

I guess this isn't the ideal Reason's Harvest image,  but perhaps if someone wanted to thank themselves with something nice you can't go wrong with blackberry pie.  I love Dutch still lifes from the Baroque era; not only are they amazingly painted, but they are very often celebrations of material wealth.
