What Thanksgiving Would Look Like if Famous Artists Plated Your Meal

Every Thanksgiving, my plate of food looks pretty much the same: I pile on as much as I can fit. So what would your plate look like if famous artists plated it for you?

San Francisco-based artist, designer and illustrator Hannah Rothstein imagined how famous artists would plate your Thanksgiving meal in her “Thanksgiving Special” series.

She takes mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, corn and green beans and arranges them on a plate in the style of a particular artist. Some of the plates are beautifully geometric like Piet Mondrian’s work, while others are scattered and chaotic like Jackson Pollock’s art. And others are completely recognizable like the post-Impressionist landscape work of Vincent Van Gogh, the abstract style of Pablo Picasso and the pop art of Andy Warhol.
