Thanksgiving – Doris Lee

This oil on canvas painting by Doris Lee is one of my favorite Thanksgiving images.  It was first exhibited in 1935 and its popularity made national headlines, and the painting also won the prestigious Logan Purchase Award.

I think I enjoy this painting so much because it is warm, family-oriented and nurturing, depicting a bustling kitchen of cooks preparing a Thanksgiving meal for their loved ones.  It was popular in 1935 and still strikes a chord in people today.
