“With mass acceptance of America’s fast-food mentality, older traditions and rituals of preparing and sharing food are rapidly disappearing. Food and tableware have undergone a chemical makeover, resulting in supermarket shelves stocked with items that imitate flavors and textures grown in nature. In contrast, seventeenth century traditional still life paintings portray natural foods and tableware made from authentic glass, cloth, and silver. Contemporary modes of preparation are exposed when supermarket products are recast into the formal setting and lighting portrayed by the Old Masters.”
