Nice photos of paintings at the DIA. Did you have a chance to see the virtual dining table in the "Splendor by the Hour" gallery? A NY chef who specializes in food of 18th-century crafted the meal.

I work at the DIA and thought you might want to know about a talk on Feb. 20 by British food historian Ivan day titled "Eating the Enlightenment: European Dining in the 18th Century. It should be very interesting.
