Representations of food and drink in Italian Renaissance and Baroque art were multifaceted: food could reference the divine, greed, rowdy behavior, fertility, sustenance, or simply the satisfaction of eating a good meal. Artists further embraced imaginative approaches to decorating objects used for serving or containing food and drink. Veronica White, curator of academic programs, will give you a taste of works from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, including works from the collections of the Princeton University Art Museum.
