Gender Relations around the Renaissance Table

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Within a ritualized "mise en scene" based on conventions, food behaviors and their representations create or reveal relationships between male and female at the table. While the couple female/male is often synonymous with a symbolic and conceptual opposition, the male image of the eater does not oppose the female one. Through Bassano's paintings of the parable of Lazarus and the rich man, we will analyze the gap between the biblical narrative and the artist's works. The text does not evoke gender or food behavior issues, whereas the paintings represent a woman banqueting with the rich man. Although it is accepted to acknowledge the hierarchy of dishes and food identity, we will examine if the images display gendered alimentary arrangements and behaviors at the table. While underlining the relative features of categories, the study of these paintings will contribute to an understanding of gender relations at the Renaissance table.
