The following handwritten description appears on the back: "A mimosa is a cocktail composed of one part champagne and one part chilled citrus fruit juice, usually orange juice unless otherwise specified. It is traditionally served in a tall champagne flute with a morning brunch. It is believed to have been invented circa 1925 in the Hotel Ritz, Paris by Frank Meier. It is probably named after the common name in Anglophone Europe for the yellow flowers of Acacia dealbata." This work is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Jackie

You don’t have to know the discourse of art history to enjoy Jackie Graham’s tasty watercolors. Her mom’s prowess in the kitchen (and famous blackberry pie) inspired an appreciation for all things culinary and a life-long sweet tooth. While most mothers implore their kids to not play with food, that is in fact what Jackie’s work is all about: food play. From ice cream cones to hot dogs to pop tarts, you can’t help but salivate over her renditions of iconic American cuisine. Fun fact: Handwritten on the back of each piece you’ll find the title and several sentences about the history of the subject. Ever wonder about the origins of the Pop-Tart? Probably not, but now you might.
