Art curated by Catherine D. Anspon and Michelle Aviña. Models Violet Krause for Kim Dawson Agency, Dallas; Mary Margaret Hancock for Wallflower Management, Dallas. Hair and makeup Al Tidwell for Kim Dawson Agency, Dallas. Fashion assistants Kendel Powers and Maegan Bruce. Shot at Studio 104, Dallas.

Inspired by the Blaffer Art Museum’s “Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art” and the Amon Carter Museum’s upcoming “Art and Appetite” exhibitions, we chose some of our favorite viand art from the Renaissance to John Currin and paired each with a delicious look from the fall runways to answer the query: What would you wear if invited to dine with John Currin, Frida Kahlo, Wayne Thiebaud, Sarah Lamb, Kenny Scharf, Will Cotton, Edward Hopper, Salvador Dalí or Diego Rivera?
