The real life Models for American Gothic, ca. 1940s --- American Gothic

The real life Models for American Gothic, ca. 1940s --- American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood. Wood's inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House, and a decision to paint the house along with "the kind of people I fancied should live in that house." The painting shows a farmer standing beside his spinster daughter. The figures were modeled by the artist's sister and their dentist.Mary Thomas
