From Drinking to Savoir-boire : Wine as Foodstuff and Pleasure

MERRY COMPANY

Isaac Elias (1590-1630)

1629

Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

For many centuries, wine has been a foodstuff, a tonic and an essential part of everyday life. Today, wine is seen as medically suspect and sometimes socially problematic. Enjoyment in moderation is the new norm.

The ‘From Drinking to Savoir-Boire’ collection contains more than 275 paintings, of which many are the work of great masters!
