Ever looked at a canvas piled high with fruits and cheese, glasses filled with amber liquids and plates of pewter spilling their wares, and wondered what it was all about? Do these document the realities of dining or celebrate the bounty of a wealthy patron? Which foods can we recognise and do they still exist? How did the painter keep the fish fresh over the weeks of painting and is there a symbolism behind the melons and the cucumbers? We shall explore images of food and feasts through three centuries.
