voice works in 1930 on Iowa, Artist named Grant would asked his sister and his dentist to pose for a painting, a tribute to the tough rural stock of America. He dressed his sister in a simple frog, a white collar held close around her neck by a broach, the dentist outfitted in overalls, a band color shirt buttoned tight around the throat and a dark business jacket. He posed the couple stiff as boards in front of a plane. Prairie house. The man transformed by art into a Midwestern farmer, rips a pitchfork and stares straight ahead. Woman looks away. The resulting painting, called American Gothic, became one of the most enduring images of the decade on icon of the Spirit that survived the hard times of the Depression.
