Wood Grant - American Gothic Premium Poster
A Museum Quality Poster of American Gothic painted by Grant Wood in 1930. The original artwork was composed of oil paints put on a beaver board with a size of 29 1/4 by 24 1/2, this has turned out to be one of the most famous of all American paintings. As Grant Wood was being driven around town by a young painter from Eldon, Iowa by the name of John Sharp, looking for inspiration, he noticed the Dibble House. This was a small white house built in the Carpenter Gothic Architectural style. Wood made a sketch of the house the following day after obtaining permission from the owners, the Jones Family. Wood decided to paint the house along with the type of people that he fancied should live in such a house. He recruited his sister, Nan to model for the woman, dressing her in a colonial print apron. The man was Wood's dentist, Dr. Byron McKeeby from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They represent a farmer and his spinster daughter.
