Let These 7 Sumptuous Still Lifes From the Artnet Gallery Network Inspire Your Holiday Tables

This Thanksgiving will be different for many of us than in years past: the gatherings will be decidedly smaller, and in some cases, people will be going it alone for the holiday. But whether you’re hosting for just one or two or a full household brood, every holiday table still deserves some special touches to make the mood festive.

So, if you’re in need of inspiration, we say where better to look for table-scaping tips than art-historical still lifes? To get you started, we’ve picked out a few of our favorites on the Artnet Gallery Network which we hope will spark some holiday cheer.
