Cost: $25 for visitors, $70 for half-year membership (4 lectures) Pay at the Door on the day.

The lecture includes the depiction of a cabbage that has been painted with such astonishing accuracy that the painted version is more alluring than the vegetable itself and lamb that waits comfortably for its destiny on a spit above a fire pit. Featuring paintings by Velazquez, Zurbaran, Meléndez & Goya, we shall explore several stunning key themes we shall explore several stunning key themes that can all be discerned from arrangements of simple food stuffs; religious fervor and symbolism, the absence of presence and that importance generates waste.
