Food, painting and history


Luis Velazquez

When it is about art everything is possible. In the Chicago Art Institute there is an interesting exhibition in which food, painting, history and art are all related. In this gallery there are more than 100 paintings from centuries 18, 19 and 20th.

The idea is, among other things, showing how food has been represented by artist through the years, in addition to all the cultural and historical aspects related to the point of view of each painter at the moment of painting any kind of food.
