Artists throughout history have been fascinated by food, and this sumptuous visual feast features nearly 150 paintings by artists including Velazquez, Rembrandt, Manet, Van Gogh, Kahlo, Hopper and Warhol. Exploring themes such as markets, feasts, religion, medicine, trades and the preparation of food, Bendiner highlights the influence of Dutch food painting, which dominated the genre for more than 200 years, and the backlash in the 1960s when Pop Art mocked the over- commercialized nature of the food industry.
