Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine at the Art Institute of Chicago.

I never miss an opportunity to see a Wayne Thiebaud painting. It was fun to go through this exhibition, over a hundred paintings ranging from the 1800s to Claes Oldenburg’s soft sculptures including his giant egg.

Some highlights were William Michael Hartnett’s Trophy of the Hunt, (1885), Peter Blume’s Vegetable Dinner, (1927), and Norman Rockwell’s Freedom from Want, (1943)
