Plating the two together is an interesting concept as you can see from these images from San-Francisco based artist Hannah Rothstein, as she proposes answers to the burning questions about How Famous Artists Would Plate Thanksgiving Meals.

Have you ever wondered what Vincent van Gogh’s Thanksgiving spread would have looked like?  Probably like this:

Would Jackson Pollock have been as gestural in his deployment of gravy and cranberry sauce as he was with his paints?

Would Piet Mondrian have been as thoughtful in his doling out of mashed potatoes and turkey as he was with his reds, blues, and yellows?

The results range from appetizing to off-putting, but in most cases Rothstein has done a good job cooking up culinary visual styles associated with each of the artists.

Would the GIRL who would be KING make sure she fit every possible food group on her plate?
