Fascinating new talk series with renowned art historian, John Francis
Explore the remarkable history of food in art, from the ancient world to the contemporary, across a range of themes.
Together we will consider how food has inspired artists over the ages and has been employed in still life, allegory, surrealism, pop art, feminism and much more. The fascinating depiction of food in art has served both as a representation of daily life as well as a metaphor for the social and economic. Recipe books by well known artists such as Georgia O’Keefe and Claude Monet are a testament to the enduring relationship of art with food.
