Saturday in the Museum with Winslow

Image: Winslow Homer, Fresh Eggs (1874).

On Saturday, we like to post about art that intersects with the world of food. This year our theme as been the sources of food and today we turn to the farm.

Fresh Eggs is by Winslow Homer. There is little need to provide background on Homer. The work is in the holdings of the National Gallery of Art, though it is not on display currently. That does not mean it should be overlooked. It is one of many paintings that Homer did of farm life, and he brings his touch to setting the simple scene in pattern and color.


With blossoms and sun and the hint of warmth, enjoy these days. If you are coming into D.C. please keep in mind that the primary purpose of this site is a dining guide for the District. There are 300+ recommended restaurants in the guide, that you can sort by cuisine, neighborhood, and current operating status (dine-in and/or take-out, etc.) in either LIST or MAP format.  Though operating status is changing day-to-day, so be sure to double-check.

If you would like to make sure you don’t miss out on our postings about either art or food, then please give us a follow.  We are on FB, Insta, and Twitter.  Click on the icons at the top or bottom of this page to stay up to date.
