From humble beginnings sketching Iowa's cornfields and rolling hills as a child, Grant Wood (1891-1942) became the father of regionalism, an artistic movement that celebrated the simple and real-life surroundings of the people. Returning from studying art in Europe, Grant asked his sister and his dentist to pose for a uniquely American work of art. Susan Wood's picture-book biography for readers 5 to 9 explores the birth of the famous painting and the artist who created it, while Ross MacDonald's sunny watercolors skillfully re-create the world of the 1920s and 30s. The book also includes photographs and additional information about Wood.
