Grant Wood’s unique rural/renaissance style paintings inspired an entire new art movement: Regionalism. His most famous piece being American Gothic, featuring a farm couple in front of their home that has a gothic style window at the epicenter. (The farm couple was actually Grant’s sister and his dentist.) After reading this small chapter book on Grant I have a deeper appreciation for him and his work, and look forward to seeing more of it.
