I am Soumya
On a fine August morning, another young artist took Grant for a drive around Iowa, to find an inspiration for his next painting. At that time, he noticed a small house built in a Gothic style. Right then, Grant drew the house on an envelope he had with him. After getting the consent of house owners, Grant Wood thought about creating a painting with people who, he thought, would be perfect for a house like that and went on to do so. The two characters in the paintings are actually Grant’s sister and his dentist. Today, this painting is on display at Art Institute of Chicago.
