Mouth Watering Art

Art of food is usually pretty boring. Seriously, how many paintings of a bowl of fruit can the world possibly produce? Infinite amounts, apparently.

Google says there are about 74,500,000 results for "bowl of fruit." The number rises with the beginning of every school term.


I know there’s historic, socioeconomic reason as to why people used fruit as a subject a long time ago, but these days fruit is not as big a deal as it was. Food, in general, isn’t that impressive as an artistic subject. We’ve got cameras to capture mouth watering images of food now, and paintings just don’t cut it the same way.


This is a painting, dudes.

Most of the time, yes. But here’s an instance where the answer is “no.” Check out Mary Ellen Johnson’s webpage for more lovely paintings of food.

S'more art please
