Jehan Georges Vibert
French, 1840-1902
The Marvelous Sauce, ca. 1899
Oil on wood panel
25 x 32 inches (63.5 x 81.3 cm)
Bequest of Elisabeth H. Gates, 1899

A nostalgic painting for me, I remember seeing this painting on every trip to the Albright Knox Art Gallery when I was growing up. It's been one of the collection highlights of the Albright Knox Art Gallery for quite a long time.
A quick search for Vibert brings up my one of the more fascinating art websites out there, Check out their mission statement. They would be quite opposed to much of the art I post on this blog, but they do their historical research well.
