When studying art in Europe in the early 20th century, Grant couldn't find a style that touched his heart quite right. Impressionism, cubism, and abstract art didn't reflect his view of the world. It wasn't until he stumbled upon Gothic art that Grant recognized something familiar. Back home in America, Grant asked his sister and his dentist to pose for what would become the founding, iconic image of regionalism and a uniquely American work of art. Grant's art celebrated hard-working Americans who finally saw themselves in fine art. American Gothic is a picture-book biography that explores the birth of the famous painting, the movement that made it possible, and the artist who created it all.
