Summary
Grant Woods was a small-town boy who created one of the most recognizable and copied images of all time, American Gothic.
Critique
Controversy about its `discovery,` disagreement over the meaning of the images, and the artist's place in time make a familiar image into something worth looking at closely. As a bonus, Mr. Biel presents his facts with humor. Recommended read.
