Artist Grant Wood was a social realism painter whose work stirred his audiences and helped inspire a movement. He is best known for his work American Gothic, a painting that has been interpreted in many ways by critics, the public, and the artist himself. The American-born artist created works of art inspired by Flemish and German painters but soon found and held his own art form. Grant Wood's impressionist art featuring small-town life, Midwestern landscapes, and historical landscape paintings was soon put aside and he began to focus on realism and regionalism.
Grant Wood was an artist, but also a jeweler and designer; a true craftsman who experimented with various forms of art. His impressionist art for sale still continues to inspire while forcing its audience to see the sometimes hidden humor in his work. Regionalist and Americana collectors can buy American paintings for sale online and at auction to express their love of all things American.
