"You saw the cover of this book and paused. You recognized the stern countenance of the old farmer and the dour mien of his companion. You recognized the pitchfork and the gabled roof. You may not have known the name of the painting or of the artist who painted it; however, you already knew that you were looking at an American masterpiece. But as you looked at this masterpiece, what did you see?" "From its controversial unveiling at a juried exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago seventy-five years ago to its eventual acceptance and recognition as a true work of art, American Gothic has seeped into the American psyche and become a beloved piece of Americana. Art connoisseur and bestselling author Thomas Hoving offers both his professional and his personal opinion about the iconic painting and brings its creator, Grant Wood, to life. Hoving trains your eye to look for the nuances, and directs your attention to little details that you might have missed, as well as providing insights into Wood's sources of inspiration and creative process. Last, he gives expert advice about viewing and truly appreciating art in all its forms. Here is a wonderful narrative filled with history, humorous anecdotes, and a great love of art.
