Americana

American Gothic, painted by Grant Wood in 1930, is one of the most iconic and recognized works of 19th century Americana. Here is a great photo of the models for American Gothic, Nan Wood Graham and Byron McKeeby. The photo was shot in 1930. Wonderful!

  2. Aw, I hoped that the artist had been driving through the countryside when he sees these two, stops and says “don’t move!”
