About the Book
This exhibition is an exploration of how food has been represented in art, illustration and photography. Mixing a selection of menu’s that span 100+ years of Northeastern fare with the interiors of Boston’s Gilded Age as photographed by T.E. Marr - illustrates how different dining and diet was just a century ago. Contemporary paintings by Pamela Johnson, Lee Price and Eric Wert delve into imagery of fast food, body awareness and the revitalization of the still-life.
