The History of Fine Wine Painting
Fine Wine Paintings have been created for a very long time and has its beginnings in still life paintings dating back many centuries. Very early ‘breakfast’ pieces by the Dutch painter Nicolas Gillis, were followed by Pieter Claesz and Willem Claes Heda, the paintings initially were quite simple and very subdued in colour. Then came Willem Kalf who also featured wine, tall glasses and wine jugs, Roemer glass, candlesticks and fruit, but light seemed to be a big influence on him. Blue and white Chinese bowls with lemons, using complimentary colours to great effect. Then there was Jan Davids de Heem with Nautilus cup, green grapes, lemon and lobster, such evocative pieces to feast your eyes on, how could they not inspire?
All of these painters were superb, their paintings probably influenced fine wine art painters that followed much later. They certainly had a great influence on me and my art.
