Meléndez brings on the munchies
By The Art Newspaper. From In The Frame
Published online: 17 February 2010
Two Boston Globe reporters have made art good enough to eat-literally. Devra First and Sebastian Smee, an ex-Art Newspaper staff member, have created dishes inspired by the delicious canvases of Luis Meléndez, the 18th-century still-life Spanish painter. The duo tackle delectable concoctions such as a 1772 depiction of two bream with Seville oranges, garlic, spices, and olive oil. Head to the Meléndez show at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (until 9 May) to see the scrumptious paintings that inspired the pair.
