American Gothic, 1930
2017 McGaw Graphics, Inc.About the ArtistGrant Wood (born Feb. 13, 1891, near Anamosa, Iowa, U.S. died Feb. 12, 1942, Iowa City, Iowa) was an American painter. He was trained as a craftsman and designer as well as a painter. On a visit to Germany in 1928, he was strongly influenced by the sharp detail of 15th-century German and Flemish paintings, and he soon abandoned his Impressionist manner for the detailed, realistic manner for which he is known. His American Gothic caused a sensation when exhibited in 1930. A telling portrait of the sober, hardworking Midwestern farmer, it has become one of the best-known icons of U.S. art, though it is often misinterpreted: the woman is not the man's wife but rather the unmarried daughter designated to stay on the farm to assist her widowed father.
