Wood, Grant (American painter and printmaker, 1891-1942)

Note: Wood, one of the Midwestern Regionalists of the 1930s, studied in Minneapolis and Iowa, then briefly at the Academie Julian in 1923. In 1928, he traveled to Munich and became influenced by the Netherlandish masters. Upon his return, his works featured indigenous subjects and local themes, often painted with sharp contrasts. In 1932, he was involved in establishing the Stone Art Colony and Art School, and was appointed Iowa State Director of the Public Works of Art Project. His most famous work of art is titled "American Gothic" and features a stern-looking farmer posing with his daughter in front of their home - the image has been reproduced, parodied, and appropriated countless times. American painter.
