Item description for Grant Wood's Studio: Birthplace Of American Gothic by Wanda M. Corn...

Published to coincide with the grand opening of Grant Wood's studio at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art in Iowa, this in-depth exploration of the artist's most fruitful period brings together some of his best-known paintings and rarely seen decorative art works. The modest nineteenth-century red brick carriage house in a small Midwestern city offers no indication that it once housed one of America's most revered artists. But step inside the doors of 5 Turner Alley and discover a space which exudes the essence of American utility, simplicity and inventiveness that distinguishes Wood's work.

By carefully tracing the development of Wood's work, from his decorative interiors and objects designed for his studio to his most famous paintings, such as American Gothic, this exquisitely produced volume provides new clues to Wood's success as a painter, craftsman and designer. Thoughtful essays examine how Wood's drawings and paintings, alongside his work in metal, wood, and interior design, together best represent the culmination of his personal experience as well as his taste and sense of humor.
