Grant Wood: American Gothic And Other Fables
Public Opening: March 2
Member Preview Days
February 28 and March 1
Grant Wood’s American Gothic is perhaps the most recognizable painting in twentieth-century American art. This exhibition presents the rare opportunity to see the iconic work together with the full range of Wood’s art—from his early Arts and Crafts decorative objects and Impressionist oils through his mature paintings, murals, and book illustrations. What the exhibition reveals is a complex, sophisticated artist whose image as a farmer-painter was as mythical as the fables he depicted in his art.
