NEW The Art History of Food and Wine
Chris Fasolino, instructor

This new course is perfect for foodies and wine enthusiasts, as well as art lovers! It will look at how images of food and wine have become part of art history. Ancient Greek and Roman mosaics and ceramics portrayed banquet scenes—a theme that continued to be popular in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance paintings. We will also learn about artists who enjoyed wine and how this reflected their cultures. Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo may have been rivals, but they both enjoyed Tuscan wines. Claude Monet was a gourmet who enjoyed fine food and vintage wines at Giverny. The British masters enjoyed port and sherry wines for reasons interwoven with English history.
