Food & Art

ooooh you’re in for a treat! regular readers will be familiar with catherine of wolf eyebrows (if you guys don’t read her blog already, you should). i have said this before but sometimes i think cath is my blog twin, we have very similar tastes in almost everything. she’s put together a visual comparison treat for you – check out some of her other art & food posts here and here and make sure to follow catherine on twitter & pinterest. she also blogs for Nice Work which is an excellent inspirational resource for designers or anyone into all things creative.

Some of you may know that Diana and I run a tumblr dedicated to the most important meal of the day: breakfast. So when I was asked to contribute a guest post to this wonderful blog my mind immediately wandered to all things culinary.

Since Diana is the queen of artistic and aesthetic comparisons, I decided to create a series of visual comparisons that marry my love of food with my appreciation for art. I hope they satisfy your eyes and your stomachs.

A Dinner Table at Night by John Singer Sargent / Cranberry White Chocolate Tarts / Roasted Apple Pie for One / Portrait with Apples by August Macke

Club Sandwich / Holyday by James Tissot / The Milk Maid by Winslow Homer / Hot Fudge Bourbon Milkshake

The Cheese Vendor by Edouard-Jean Dambourgez / Cheese Souffle / French-pressed Coffee Ice Cream / Blue Enamel Coffeepot, Earthenware and Fruit by Vincent van Gogh

Salmon and Quinoa with Toasted Seeds / The Poor Fisherman by Pierre Puvis de Chavannes / Detail from The Infant Jesus Distributing Bread to Pilgrims by Bartolome Esteban Murillo / Roti

Thanks for having me Diana!
