Georgia, Atlanta Region: The Currency of Taste
This slide lecture by JASNA-Georgia, Atlanta Regional Coordinator Kristen Miller Zohn will explore the production, use, and aesthetics of Georgian silver associated with drinking, dining, and luxury. In order to live in polite society, a Georgian needed to possess “taste,” or the ability to recognize and appreciate beauty and excellence, which they showed off with expensive possessions such as silver objects. Moreover, the gustatory pleasures of the beverages and foodstuffs involved in sumptuous Georgian meals were enhanced by the visual beauty of these objects.
