Grant Wood (February 13, 1891 – February 12, 1942)
Prior to World War II, there existed in the United States a type of art known as Regionalism, which explored the rich open world of the Midwest. Grant Wood, one of the most renowned painters from this period, created images inspired by his home in Iowa. His famous painting “American Gothic” featured a farming couple in front of an iconic home; this work has become one of the most recognized American paintings in history. In his other paintings, Wood explores uniquely American topics, including our country’s history and the landscape that he knew all his life.
