Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Kick back with some art if you want. I always do. Kids bored? Show 'em some art.
"Thanksgiving" by John Currin John Currin's paintings are AMAZING but they always freak me out. Everyone is kind of scary. And just look at that nasty blood puddle under that perfectly-painted turkey! The lady on the left is all..."Dang it, Sheila. I just cleaned this table. Better go grab the bleach spray."
"Turkey Talk" by Charley Harper
"Thanksgiving" by David Bates Did you guys know he's from Dallas, Texas? Our DFW museums are RICH in Bates paintings. Not to be confused with the deceased British painter with the same name.
"Cutting the Pumpkin" by Franck Antoine Bail
"Thanksgiving Banquet" by N.C. Wyeth N.C. Wyeth is the father of Andrew Wyeth. Here's one of the son's most famous paintings, "Christina's World":
"Portrait of a Turkey" by Johann Wenceslaus Peter Wenzal That middle name cracks me up. As in..."Good King Wenceslaus".
"The Christmas Hamper" by Robert Martineau This one is fascinating. I keep seeing new things! It's actually a Christmas paining, but I'm including it anyway. 'Cause I'm a total REBEL! The girl on the far left is up to something. What in the world is she holding? Probably a can of lard she's about to smear all over mama's expensive sideboard. We like the tiny black kitten, too. What's on the chair on the left? I can't figure it out.
"Still Life with Turkey Pie" by Pieter Claesz
