"American Gothic" by Grant Wood

The title of this piece is called "American Gothic" by Grand Wood. It was painted in 1930. Grant Wood was an American painter. This is his most famous piece. Linda and I were driving through Eldon Iowa and saw a sign that said "American Gothic House" and we followed the signs to the place. We thought it was pretty cool. The couple in the painting are actually suppose to be father and daughter, even though a lot of people mistake them for husband and wife. Wood used his sister and his dentist as models.
