Description
 
Grant Wood’s renowned painting “American Gothic” of a farm woman and man standing with a pitchfork in front of their farmhouse has become an American icon. But who is the artist behind the painting? Born into a farming family in the 1800s, Grant Wood preferred to make charcoal sketches rather than drive the family tractor. Unlike his contemporaries the Impressionists, Wood painted simple paintings with a classical feel. He chose to paint the people and places around him, and this new style of art, known as Regionalism, changed the way people looked at the world around. Complete with an instructional afterword to help young artists learn to draw as Grant Wood did. Stunning full-color reproductions. “A gem of a book.”
