The joys of the table include not just food and drink, but also plates and serving pieces, silverware, linens, and floral arrangements. These items have proved irresistible to artists, from ancient Egypt and Rome to the Netherlands of the seventeenth century, from the Impressionists to the present day, resulting in still-life paintings as well as beautifully crafted tableware. This year’s calendar features tantalising paintings by masters of the genre, such as Melendez, de Heem, and Cezanne; enchanting fruit and flower images by Monet and Renoir; and a beautifully crafted sixteenth-century Turkish dish, a sixteenth-century Japanese ewer, and a twenty first century coffeepot. 124 pages with 56 full-colour illustrations. Hardcover with a concealed spiral binding and a ribbon marker. 7” x 9”.
