Thanksgiving Photos and Art
Thanksgiving Paintings, Photos and Images
Among these Thanksgiving photos I've included in this article are some classics from Norman Rockwell, along with some images based upon an interpretation of the first Thanksgiving, where Pilgrims and Indians gathered together in celebration of the bountiful harvest they enjoyed.
These Thanksgiving photos and images are all very well done and capture the essence of what Thanksgiving has meant to so many for so long in America.
We don't find a lot of Thanksgiving photos, and so to include them here hopefully is a treat an inspiration for you. It's a good reminder of our roots from long ago where we all thanked God for the bounty that He has bestowed upon us all.
TheThanksgiving photos included here largely focus on that foundational aspect of the Thanksgiving holiday, and are extraordinary works of art on top of that.

Great Thanksgiving Art of Norman Rockwell
This is a great piece of art from American artist Norman Rockwell, and I think displays what everyone wishes and hopes their family Thanksgiving time is and should be. It's wonderful to see the smiling faces of a family that loves one another being expressed in the art.
I'm not being cynical in saying this, as many families include happy and engaging Thanksgiving experiences. It's just that Rockwell in his usual brilliance capture its essence in this great painting.
