Making food is considered to be an art. If so why are people willing to pay big money for paintings and are not so willing to pay big money for food? Just a thought I had while reading Sevice Included by Phoebe Damrosch

  1. That is a good observation. I think it is because paintings and sculptures are lasting and meant to have enduring aesthetic value. In contrast, food is a short-lived pleasure that we need a lot of to live, whereas a single painting would last a lifetime. A person might splurge on something they will only need a few of, but if you need to continually purchase something you use a few times a day, it is not cost effective to spend a lot of money.
