Description:
 Tamara Faulkner of the Art Institute brings us a fascinating lecture on food in art. “Unripened peaches/On the maternal branch we were wrothless/Now, on these adopted branches, we are priceless.” The ancient Roman writer Martial (c.40-c.103 CE) summed up the juicy paradox of still-life painting. Both commodity and cautionary tale, testament to the everyday and inventory of affluence, “A Feast for the Eyes’ will consider the sensual, political and religious history of the western still life form Zeuxis to Dolce & Gabanna.
