The culinary photographer Tony Le Duc has succeeded in elevating basic food to the status of art. A talent that the Baroque painter Frans Snijders has in common with Le Duc.

Le Duc is inspired by Baroque food still-lifes and uses new photo and video work to develop a fresh perspective on Baroque.  A delicious exhibition in the new Snijders and Rockox House.  Carper ende ghimber, caneel ende rosijn; Quaeckels, lijstres, vincken ende diergelijcke in deech; Potagie ... Carp, ginger, cinnamon and raisins, quails, thrushes, finches and other fowl in pastry, porridge... These are just a few of the foods that seventeenth-century citizens would indulge in. You can find the ingredients for these meals in the imposing market scenes and still-lifes by Frans Snijders and his contemporaries.  The culinary photographer Tony Le Duc has the same keen eye as Snijders. His photos elevate basic foodstuffs to the status of art. Le Duc is a master conjurer with colour and composition.  Put up his photos alongside seventeenth-century still-lifes and an extraordinary tension develops.

A delicious exhibition in the home and studio of Frans Snijders, which will reopen to the public in 2018, along with the Rockox House. After looking at all that good food, it’s time to taste a typical Baroque dish in a restaurant or buy some from the Baroque food truck.
