Thanksgiving is the “harvest festival” of the North Americans and is always celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November. In the USA and Canada, it is the most important family celebration before Christmas, when the whole family comes together for a big feast.
San Francisco-based artist Hannah Rothstein has come up with something very special, as the online magazine COLOSSAL recently reported. She imagined Thanksgiving dinners as plated by famous artists throughout history. Gravy, corn, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce, and even the plate itself is used as a medium for edible artworks in the style of Jackson Pollock, Georges Seurat, Vincent van Gogh or .

For René Magritte “Ceci n’est pas un repas.
Vincent van Goth would have created a beautiful landscape.
Jackson Pollock would have spread the food on the plate in the form of splashes of colour.
The pointillist Georges Seurat, on the other hand, would have designed his plate with dashes of colour.
And who would have presented their food four times in the shape of tins?
