Review "Food in Painting loads its table with good things to see. The analysis is shrewd; the commentaries incisive; the illustrations . . . suitably mouth-watering. From still-life to Surrealism, Bendiner shows the variety of symbolic flavours in food-themed art. However, unlike many art historians, he''s not so blinded by symbolism that he fails to savour all the evidence about changes in diet, cooking and taste. A visual and mental feast."--The Independent (The Independent ) "This is not a traditional art historical study; rather, Bendiner''s approach represents what many students and museumgoers seem to crave today: creative connections and nonlinear thinking, more in tune with the relatively new field of visual culture in which chronology is sublimated to ideas. . . . Refreshing and pleasurable to read. . .  .An intriguing and provocative study. Reading Bendiner''s book leaves one with the general tools to consider images of food in Western art form the Renasissance to the present in relation to one another, resulting in a rewarding game for the reader/viewer and a refreshing contribution to the field of art history."--Gastronomica   (Dorothy Moss Gastronomica ) About the Author Kenneth Bendiner is professor of art history at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the author of An Introduction to Victorian Painting and The Art of Ford Madox Brown.
