Remembering Thanksgiving in Art



The stores are already hung with lights and Christmas music is weaving its way down the aisle with us in the supermarket. Be that as it may, take some time to savor Thanksgiving, and not just literally. Do some research on the horrible winter the Pilgrims weathered and about their feast of Thanksgiving the next year. It’s a great story! Enjoy this piece of art created some time around 1914 by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris. It is entitled, “The First Thanksgiving.”
