Food and Art

A few days ago, I went to the Allbright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo. Among their collection they had this: http://www.albrightknox.org/collection/collection-highlights/piece:vibert-marvelous-sauce/.
It's a great collection - I was mesmerized by a Van Gogh they have.

Cute, and interesting to think about. The write-up draws some conclusions about what Vibert was saying with this painting, but I wish he or she had commented on who they believe paid for the painting, as back in those days most painters lived on sponsorships and painted on commission.

The Albright-Knox is an absolute jewel for Buffalo.
