CULINARY HISTORIANS OF NEW YORK AND THE NATIONAL ARTS CLUB PRESENT

Cooking and Modern Art with Mary Ann Caws

Thursday, November 21, 2013

Food has always been a favorite subject of the world's artists, from still lifes by Matisse and Picasso to the works of Claes Oldenburg and Andy Warhol. But how do artists eat? Mary Ann Caws, who has just published The Modern Art Cookbook, will provide a window into how both great and lesser-known modern artists, writers, and poets ate, cooked, depicted, and wrote about food. Looking at art from the impressionists, symbolists, cubists, futurists, and surrealists, up to contemporary artists, and then putting these works alongside writings about food in diaries, novels, letters, and poems, she highlights the significance of particular ingredients and dishes in the lives of some of the world's greatest artists.

Recipes in the book include Allen Ginsberg's borscht, Picasso's Spanish omelet, and Monet's madeleines. Refreshments based on some of the recipes in the book will be served at the reception.

Prolific scholar, poet, and translator Mary Ann Caws is currently Distinguished Professor of English, French, and Comparative Literature at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. She has written, edited, and/or translated over 80 volumes on modern art and literature, including books on René Char, Salvador Dali, Henry James, Robert Motherwell, Pablo Picasso, and Virginia Woolf, along with Provençal Cooking: Savoring the Simple Life.
