Speaker: Lynne Gibson

Banquets and breakfasts celebrate an abundance of foodstuffs. Could the curl of lemon peel, platter of oysters, kraakware bowl of blemished fruit or spiced meat pie warn of the dangers of gluttony and pleasures of the flesh? Vanitas paintings display treasured possessions. If we look closely, however, the pocket-watch, the fading bloom and, more explicitly, the human skull might hint that consciences are troubled by such ostentation.
