Registration is now open for this year’s ESNA Conference!
Food, glorious food: Food at the heart of nineteenth-century art
June 8-9, 2017

 

Antwerp, Museum Aan de Stroom (MAS)


Organized in conjunction with the exhibition ANTWERP À LA CARTE at MAS in Antwerp, this symposium intends to study the various and complex relations between food, the experience of eating, and nineteenth-century art. Modern phenomena such as industrialization, liberalization of the market, urbanization, rise of the middle class, issues of nationality and gender, leisure time and economic upheaval affected the gastronomic field as well as the depiction of it in the visual arts. This new fascination for food was reflected in the entire panoply of the artistic field, ranging from recipes, food literature, decorative arts and interior design to works of art and art criticism.
