Of Counters and Tables

Whether it is for an evening meal or in their favourite pub –people like to get together for food and drink. Many pictures show different eating and drinking cultures. Artists treat the subject in different ways, to study society or to express a particular lifestyle. Negative behaviour such as drunkenness and extravagance can also be the target of criticism in their paintings.
