Subject: Food in Art
Lecturer: Barbara Craven
From planting, to harvest or capture, its preparation and consumption, food is a dominant factor in our lives. Visual art is a reflection of life so it makes sense that food is a common image, recreated in countless compositional interpretations.
As essential to our lives, it is not surprising that the depiction of food in art spans across cultures and all recorded human history. Since the hunting scenes in cave paintings, the walls of burial chambers in Ancient Egypt, in Medieval Manuscripts, onwards through the Renaissance to modern times, food has been depicted as a celebration of a theme, the composition itself or as a symbol.
