Georgia s food and drinking culture in the eyes of Nikoloz Pirosmani


  • Ulrica Söderlind

    () (Department of Economic History, Stockholm University, Sweden)


This article deals with how Nikoloz Pirosmani depicted Georgia’s food and drinking culture in his works. Pirosmani is today acknowledged as the great national painter of the nation, however during his lifetime he was poorly known and died as a very poor man. The author studies the paintings by Pirosmani’s hand purely from a food and beverage perspective and not from an art critics point of view. The author discusses in the end of the paper the different possibilities of why Pirosmani chose to depict Georgia’s food and drinking culture as he did.
