Starting with the emblematic still-life paintings of the Renaissance, artists have found ways to make food look mouthwatering on canvas. Reproductions of some of those old-school works are still found in fashionable restaurants, acting as visual cues to tease taste buds and get your tummy growling.


After the jump, check out a handful of food paintings throughout the ages. 



1568 The Peasant Wedding by Pieter Bruegel the Elder






















1995 A1 Sauce by Ralph Goings
This photorealistic wonder shows a table setting in a nameless diner, late afternoon. Goings, born in 1928, one of the movement's prodigal sons, has a thing for ketchup bottles, napkin holders, and salt shakers.
