Grant Wood's American Gothic
Grant Wood created the popular American painting American Gothic in 1930, which depicts a farmer standing beside his daughter (often mistaken to be his wife). The title of the painting is derived from the architectural style of the background house. American Gothic is a house that you can visit and is one of the most well-known images of twentieth-century American art. The Carpenter Gothic architectural style was used to build the Dibble House in Eldon, Iowa.
