Getty starts cooking class - how NOT to make pancakes

The Pancake Maker , 1782. Jean-Honoré Fragonard (French, ca. 1732–1806).

The Getty Museum announced the acquisition today of French painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard's cooking demo from 1782. Seriously, talk about the French Revolution ... those pancakes must have been just as revolting.

This drawing, and "The Trinity with the Virgin, Saints John the Evangelist, Stephen and Lawrence and a Donor," from 1479, attributed to the Peter Hemmel von Andlau Workshop, go on display at the Getty in March.
