Raphaelle Peale, Still Life with Steak, 1816-17. Oil on wood, 34 x 49.5 cm. Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, Utica, New York, (image courtesy Jeffrey Richmond-Moll)


Ph.D. candidate Jeffrey Richmond-Moll has published the essay “’A Knot of Species’: Raphaelle Peale’s Still Life with Steak and the Ecology of Food” in the catalogue “Nature’s Nation: American Art and Environment (Yale University Press, 2018). Looking to early nineteenth-century discourses on horticulture, husbandry, and the physiology of taste, Richmond-Moll’s essay reinterprets Peale’s still-life paintings as revelatory of period understandings of the organic interconnections between human and nonhuman life. The book, which accompanies an exhibition currently on view at the Princeton University Art Museum, will be released nationally on November 20, 2018.
