This weeks side trip to the world of art continues the series on still life paintings. On most days we post about food and D.C. dining, so we have been doing still lifes that intersect between art and food.
This one is a last one from the 18th century, more likely the 17th. It is from Hungarian Jakob Bogdani (sometimes spelled Bogdany), who has little about him on the web, but from what we found he was born in Eperjes, which is now in Slovakia around 1660. He died in London in 1724 with stops along the way in northern Europe.
We continue to try to expand our digital footprint, which is centered on our D.C. dining guide with more than 300 recommended restaurants. We have more places listed than most guides and more up-to-date information than any other guide for Washington. You can sort by neighborhood, cuisine, or current status (dine-in, take-out, etc.). You can search by LIST or MAP. It’s pretty cool. Check it out.
