Art in Food and Food in Art, Peter Rose
A lusciously illustrated PowerPoint talk on food and drink seen in the seventeenth century Dutch Masters and their relevance to the American kitchen today: it explores the food ways brought to America by the Dutch more than three centuries ago and how these foods were changed and adapted under the new circumstances. Using slides of some 40 paintings by Jan Steen, Adriaen van Ostade, Jan Davidsz. De Heem, Pieter Claesz, Harmen van Steenwijck and many others, the lecture will demonstrate how these art works give an insight in 17th-century food practices and shed new light on the colonial diet.
Author/Food Historian Peter G. Rose has published nine books and numerous articles on Dutch food ways and the influence of the Dutch on the American kitchen. She lectures extensively on the subject nationally and internationally. Venues for her talks have included the Smithsonian Institute, the National Gallery of Art and the Mauritshuis in The Hague in the Netherlands. She is the recipient of the 2002 Alice P. Kenney Award for research and writing on the food customs and diet of the Dutch settlers in New Netherland. For more information, please visit her website:
