This still life with peaches and insects was painted by German artist Georg Flegel. I don’t know if the insects are edible.
I like this Chardin still life of a water pitcher and garlic – Paleo staples. Chardin creates an atmospheric glow surrounding ordinary, everyday objects. For more Chardin, see the Art Renewal website.
I found this incredibly detailed still life with oysters and nuts at the Art Renewal website. Be forewarned – if you love art, it is easy to lose an afternoon perusing the drawings and paintings in this huge online collection of both old and modern realist masters.
Being an artist who loves romantic realist art, I thought I’d post an occasional beautiful food painting. This oil on panel painting of Freshwater Fish was made by Dutch Golden Age artist Jacob Gillig in 1684.
