The following description is hand-written on the back of the paper: A doughnut or donut is a type of fried dough confectionary or dessert food. Doughnuts have a disputed history. One theory suggests Dutch settlers invented them in North America. Indeed, in the 19th century, doughnuts were sometimes referred to as one kind of "oliekoek" (a Dutch word literally meaning "oil cake"), a "sweetened cake fried in fat."

This piece 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.
