Historical Context:
"Grant Wood painted "American Gothic" to symbolize the steadfast farmers of Iowa. This painting has always reminded me of my grandparents and their farm in upper Michigan. I changed the expression on the face of the woman from worry to begrudging humor to better capture my grandmother and her sense of humor. she is one of the strongest women I have ever known." -Leanne Schnepp
