Willem Claesz Heda’s largest known painting is the focus of this video from the Children’s Video Tour, titled “Banquet Piece with Mince Pie.” In this painting, Heda depicts a banquet still life, complete with half-eaten food, oyster shells, scattered olives, and the remains of a mince pie. In the Netherlands in the seventeenth century, mince pie was a dish made for holidays and special occasions, made with meat and flavored with fruit, currants, raisins, spices and lemon slices.
