Talk given by Alan Read

How has art decorated eating places and how have the activities of trading in food, preparation and cooking been made the subject of paintings? How and why are people shown eating?  How does the sheer beauty of some foods become celebrated in painting?  This is a wide-ranging lecture which encompasses ancient and modern art across many ages and styles: from the symbolic to the decorative, from luxurious to simple. How, for centuries, glorious food has made glorious art.
