Tastes and Temptations by John Varriano Book Summary:

"John Varriano's book is not only a delightful read but draws fascinating parallels between two hitherto disparate fields: art history and the history of food in the Renaissance. Outstanding scholarship that opens whole new venues of inquiry."--Ken Albala, author of Eating Right in the Renaissance and Beans: A History "Art history and food history have traditionally been separate disciplines, parallel universes. In this book John Varriano makes a cosmic leap and lures the two into a stimulating, provocative, and always entertaining study--a tasting menu of gastronomic and visual delights."--Gillian Riley, author of The Oxford Companion to Italian Food "With wit and erudition, John Varriano shows us how broad cultural relationships can be drawn between the developments of Italian Renaissance art and the period's growing and changing interest in food. Enlightening and fascinating details greatly enhance our understanding of the roles that taste and temptation played in creating the early modern world."--David G. Wilkins, co-editor of History of Italian Renaissance Art "Appetites for palate and palette are both whetted in Varriano's urbane and thoroughly magisterial study. What could be more satisfying than to feast on food and art together at the same historic table?"--Patrick Hunt, author of Renaissance Visions

The Taste of Art

Tastes And Temptations Food And Art In Renaissance Italy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Taste of Art by Silvia Bottinelli,Margherita d’Ayala Valva Book Summary:

The Taste of Art offers a sample of scholarly essays that examine the role of food in Western contemporary art practices. The contributors are scholars from a range of disciplines, including art history, philosophy, film studies, and history. As a whole, the volume illustrates how artists engage with food as matter and process in order to explore alternative aesthetic strategies and indicate countercultural shifts in society. The collection opens by exploring the theoretical intersections of art and food, food art’s historical root in Futurism, and the ways in which food carries gendered meaning in popular film. Subsequent sections analyze the ways in which artists challenge mainstream ideas through food in a variety of scenarios. Beginning from a focus on the body and subjectivity, the authors zoom out to look at the domestic sphere, and finally the public sphere. Here are essays that study a range of artists including, among others, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Daniel Spoerri, Dieter Roth, Joseph Beuys, Al Ruppersberg, Alison Knowles, Martha Rosler, Robin Weltsch, Vicki Hodgetts, Paul McCarthy, Luciano Fabro, Carries Mae Weems, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Janine Antoni, Elżbieta Jabłońska, Liza Lou, Tom Marioni, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Michael Rakowitz, and Natalie Jeremijenko.

Breaking Bread

Tastes And Temptations Food And Art In Renaissance Italy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Breaking Bread by Lynne Christy Anderson Book Summary:

"Lynne Anderson's portraits of recent immigrant families capture a crucial truth about how real food connects us to our culture, our memories, and to one another. This is an important book." —Alice Waters, Chez Panisse Restaurant "Everyone loves talking about food. In this remarkable book, Lynne Anderson lets recent immigrants to America speak in their own words about the foods they most loved from their homelands. Her cook-storytellers use recipes for cherished foods as a way to recall childhood memories, the events that caused them to emigrate, and their efforts to assimilate—the bitter along with the sweet. For a delicious introduction to the immigrant experience in America, I can't think of a better starting point than Breaking Bread." —Marion Nestle, author of What to Eat and Food Politics "Good ol' home cooking that's not chicken and apple pie. A feast of stories and flavors." Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club and the Bone Setter's Daughter "What's so lovely to me about this book is hearing the actual voices of the people and the unpredictable way their conversations about food capture life issues and truths that extend far beyond the kitchen. More than ever it seems critical to be finding and celebrating what we have in common and the connections between people."—Nikki Silva, co-author of Hidden Kitchens: Stories, Recipes, and More from NPR's The Kitchen Sisters "Breaking Bread throws open a delightful window on the immigrant kitchen in America, capturing the voices, traditions and--yes!--recipes of a couple dozen different food cultures in a single volume." —Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food "In 25 deeply moving first-person accounts from a wide range of immigrant families, each one sensitively introduced by the author, Lynne Anderson takes us straight to the heart of our common humanity. Sharing food and stories are what bind us all across differences in time, space culture, gender and identity. Apart from being an important cultural document, Breaking Bread is a rich, wisdom-packed experience for the scholar, for the casual reader and for all cooks who demand more than just recipes."—Niloufer Ichaporia King, author of My Bombay Kitchen

Penser l'étrangeté

Tastes And Temptations Food And Art In Renaissance Italy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Penser l'étrangeté by Francesca Alberti,Cyril Gerbron,Jérémie Koering,Institut national d'histoire de l'art (France) Book Summary:

Strange, extravagant, eccentric, bizarre, capricious ... Adjectives do not fail to describe the works and most singular artists of the Renaissance. But do they precisely cover these qualities? What sense they lend? They refer to a passed judgment or a modern belief? Do art historians agree on their scope and theoretical implications? Faced with the instability of these notions, the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and, more generally, the relativism of critical judgment utterance to the Renaissance or the twenty-first century, will not cover necessarily the same reality, since the abnormal, strange and the bizarre are defined in terms of changing standards, it is necessary to place these issues at the center of this book. This dual perspective has a historical and historiographical guide to this archeology of strangeness.


Tastes And Temptations Food And Art In Renaissance Italy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Wine by John Varriano Book Summary:

From celebrations of Bacchus in ancient Rome to the Last Supper and casual dinner parties, wine has long been a key component of festivities, ceremonies, and celebrations. Made by almost every civilization throughout history, in every part of the world, wine has been used in religious ceremonies, inspired artists and writers, been employed as a healing medicine, and, most often, sipped as way to relax with a gathering of friends. Yet, like all other forms of alcohol, wine has also had its critics, who condemn it for the drunkenness and bad behavior that arise with its overconsumption. Wine can render you tongue-tied or philosophical; it can heal wounds or damage health; it can bring society together or rend it. In this fascinating cultural history of wine, John Varriano takes us on a tour of wine’s lively story, revealing the polarizing effect wine has had on society and culture through the ages. From its origins in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia to the expanding contemporary industries in Australia, New Zealand, and America, Varriano examines how wine is made and how it has been used in rituals, revelries, and remedies throughout history. In addition, he investigates the history of wine’s transformative effects on body and soul in art, literature, and science from the mosaics of ancient Rome to the poetry of Dickinson and Neruda and the paintings of Caravaggio and Manet. A spirited exploration, this book will delight lovers of sauvignon blanc or pinot noir, as well as those who are interested in the rich history of human creativity and consumption.

Un long chemin vers la liberté

Tastes And Temptations Food And Art In Renaissance Italy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Un long chemin vers la liberté by Nelson Mandela Book Summary:

En 1974, alors qu'il est au pénitencier de Robben Island, Nelson Mandela rédige clandestinement des " souvenirs ". C'est ce texte, sorti en fraude, qu'il retrouvera lors de sa libération en 1990, après plus de vingt-sept ans de détention, et qu'il reprendra pour en faire Un long chemin vers la liberté. Nelson Mandela raconte comment le petit campagnard, né en 1918 au Transkei, dans la famille royale des Thembus, va ouvrir le premier cabinet d'avocats noirs d'Afrique du Sud et devenir un des principaux responsables de l'ANC. Ce récit mêle les souvenirs personnels, voire intimes, aux analyses de la situation en afrique du Sud et aux descriptions des luttes et des combats contre la domination blanche et l'apartheid. L'enfance et les rites d'initiation, la fuite à Johannesburg, le travail dans les mines et les études de droit, le premier mariage et le divorce, puis le second mariage avec Winnie, la découverte du nationalisme africain, les Campagnes de défi, la clandestinité, la lutte armée et la prison. Commencent alors les longues années de travail forcé - treize ans dans une carrière de chaux -, d'attente, mais aussi d'espoir et de luttes. Dans les années 80, le régime d'apartheid bousculé à l'intérieur par la résistance noire, étranglé par les sanctions économiques, n'aura d'autre issue que la négociation. Nelson Mandela, qui est devenu un mythe, sera l'homme clef pour sortir son pays de l'impasse où l'ont enfermé quarante années d'apartheid. Un long chemin vers la liberté est le récit d'une vie exemplaire entièrement consacrée à l'affirmation de la dignité de l'homme. C'est aussi un document exceptionnel sur un des bouleversements majeurs de cette fin de XXe siècle.

Le Temps scellé

Tastes And Temptations Food And Art In Renaissance Italy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Le Temps scellé by Andrei arsenievitch Tarkovski Book Summary:

"« Il n’est pas dans mon intention de faire ici la leçon à qui que ce soit, ni d’imposer un point de vue. Ce livre n’a été dicté que par le désir de défricher la jungle des possibilités qui s’offrent à un art encore jeune et magnifique, toujours à explorer, et de m’y retrouver moi-même aussi indépendant et libre que possible. » Andreï Tarkovski, tout au long de son œuvre cinématographique, rédige des notes de travail, des réflexions sur son art, restituant dans le même mouvement son itinéraire d’homme et d’artiste. À partir de son exil en Italie où il réalise Nostalghia en 1983, puis en France durant la dernière année de sa vie, il rassemble ces écrits qui sont d’abord édités en Allemagne puis dans les autres pays d’Europe occidentale où ils deviendront vite une référence incontournable. Il y aborde une large réflexion aussi bien sur la civilisation contemporaine que sur l’art cinématographique : son ontologie et sa place parmi les autres arts, ou des aspects plus concrets comme le scénario, le montage, l’acteur, le son, la musique, la lumière, le cadrage... Puisant dans son expérience de cinéaste, dans sa vaste culture littéraire, se remémorant ses années de formation, les luttes interminables pour terminer ses films à l’époque soviétique, Andreï Tarkovski offre ici le livre-bilan d’un artiste en recherche de sens, d’un homme qui consacra son inépuisable énergie à « fixer le temps »...

The Mind's Eye

Tastes And Temptations Food And Art In Renaissance Italy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Mind's Eye by Jeffrey F. Hamburger,Anne-Marie Bouché Book Summary:

The Mind's Eye focuses on the relationships among art, theology, exegesis, and literature--issues long central to the study of medieval art, yet ripe for reconsideration. Essays by leading scholars from many fields examine the illustration of theological commentaries, the use of images to expound or disseminate doctrine, the role of images within theological discourse, the development of doctrine in response to images, and the place of vision and the visual in theological thought. At issue are the ways in which theologians responded to the images that we call art and in which images entered into dialogue with theological discourse. In what ways could medieval art be construed as argumentative in structure as well as in function? Are any of the modes of representation in medieval art analogous to those found in texts? In what ways did images function as vehicles, not merely vessels, of meaning and signification? To what extent can exegesis and other genres of theological discourse shed light on the form, as well as the content and function, of medieval images? These are only some of the challenging questions posed by this unprecedented and interdisciplinary collection, which provides a historical framework within which to reconsider the relationship between seeing and thinking, perception and the imagination in the Middle Ages.

Les régimes de santé au Moyen Âge

Tastes And Temptations Food And Art In Renaissance Italy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Les régimes de santé au Moyen Âge by Marilyn Nicoud Book Summary:

Souvent connue et citée à travers le seul exemple, traduit en latin, du Tacuinum sanitatis du médecin chrétien de Bagdad Ibn Butlân († 1068), la littérature diététique médiévale constitua en réalité, dès le XIIIe siècle, un genre à part entière de la production médicale, fréquemment désigné sous le titre de « régimes de santé ». Fondée sur les savoirs hérités de l’Antiquité et du monde arabe, elle connut une fortune importante dont rendent compte aussi bien la centaine d’ouvrages en latin rédigés entre le début du XIIIe et la fin du XVe siècle, que leurs diffusions manuscrite et imprimée. Née d’une réflexion théorique sur la place et le rôle de la diététique dans la conservation de la santé, elle repose sur l’examen et l’observation des « choses non naturelles » (air, alimentation et boisson, sommeil et veille, inanition et replétion, exercice et repos, passions de l’âme) dont le rôle est ambivalent : causes fréquentes de maladies, elles sont aussi les principaux facteurs de la conservation de la santé. Les régimes de santé répondent également à une attente sociale en matière de soin du corps et de prévention des maladies. Certains ont été rédigés par de célèbres médecins médiévaux, à la demande ou à destination d’illustres patients dont ils étaient les praticiens. Ils témoignent ainsi de la circulation des savoirs entre l’université et les milieux de cour, attestée dans d’autres domaines à la fin du Moyen Âge. Ce livre se compose de deux volumes ; le premier est consacré à l’émergence de cette écriture médicale, aux conditions de sa production, à sa diffusion, à ses usages et lectures ; le second propose une série d’annexes qui complètent l’étude de cette tradition, notamment des inventaires des regimina sanitatis latins conservés. À travers l’histoire d’un genre et celle de ses livres manuscrits, il tente de retracer le développement et la diffusion d’une véritable culture diététique.
