For centuries, artists in every mode have drawn inspiration from their lunch. From the Renaissance era still-life of a banquet table to Andy Warhol’s famous Campbell’s soup cans, food has long been a focus of painters and designers. And many an eater would tell you an artfully arranged plate of food is more appealing than a messy one, no matter the taste. We talk with local artists and a food historian about the intersection of meals and masterpieces.
