"In Let Us Give Thanks, one of the masterpieces from Carter's early period, the artist has turned a realistic genre subject into a universal symbol of the value of the family. Seemingly a literal rendering of a particular family (Carter's own) at lunch on the side porch of a southern Ohio house, Carter transforms his family into an ideal family by depicting them joined together, heads bowed, united by a moment of prayer." -Jean Robertson, "Clarence Carter: The Portsmouth Collection," The Southern Ohio Museum and Cultural Center, 1984
