Further information

Antoni Miralda was commissioned by John Kaldor to prepare a "coloured feast" for the opening of his new showroom designed by Mike Kitching.

The print, produced at the National Art School is a record of the coloured bread baked by Butler's Family Bakery, Northbridge under Miralda’s supervision and exhibited at the AGNSW from 21 September - 4 October 1973. The print with its diagrams, notes and photographs is Miralda's own documentation of the event.
