Abstract [en]

This article deals with how Nikoloz Pirosmani depicted and saw the Georgian food and drinking culture. The article will start with the sources used followed by a description about Pirosmani and his life and finally a section about Pirosmani’s art and paintings. The text ends with a closing discussion about the result of the analysis of Pirosmani’s work and the results will also be compared with the author’s own experience of the food and drinking culture in Georgia. It is important to understand that the author of this paper has no intention of making any criticism of Pirosmani’s artwork as in the terms of art criticism. The paintings that have been left behind and are acknowledged as being by Pirosmani’s hand are used as primary sources in order to find out how the painter saw his own country’s food and drinking culture.
