Re-Pinned from Desiree 1) Grant Wood, 1930 2) Regionalism 3) It was an American modern art movement and focused on showing the life of farmers and mainly scenes of rural life. 4) In this painting, Grant Wood used two farmers as the models of the painting and he uses dull colors to represent the hardships of these farmers during that century and to also set the mood of the painting

Grant Wood, 'Spring in the Country', (1941). Mr. Wood's style is so distinctive! His subjects have a solidness & substance to them. The composition is deceptive - it looks simplistic and somewhat sparse. Much more complex than it appears! I like it for it's uniqueness!
