Grant Wood:

American Gothic/Fall Plowing/Death on the Ridge Road

I was happy to find this Thonet chair at a used furniture store in San Jose. I wanted to honor Grant Wood, the early 20th Century American painter known for his portrayals of the rural midwest. "American Gothic" is his iconic painting of a couple in Iowa standing in front of a farmhouse. The models were Wood's sister and his dentist.
