Here at Yumology we're always impressed when artists find ways of incorporating food and drink into a work of art. You could argue that cooking itself is indeed an art form that requires meticulous attention to detail from the very first ingredient to the final presentation.

In her recent exhibit covered by the Huffington Post, Florentine artist Elisabetta Rogai showcases her beautiful, feminine portraits painted entirely with red and white wine. Much like wine the portraits take on a life of their own and tend to mature in coloration much like wine does in flavor over time.  As the paintings, and wine therein, become more and more oxygenated they darken and develop deep, rich textures, only magnifying the seductive emotions within them.
