Grant Wood- American Gothic & Other Fables at the Whitney Museum in NYC

I am a child of the 60's. I knew the painting American Gothic and associated it with Kellogg's Cornflakes. Now that I am approaching my 60's, I have come to appreciate Grant Wood's skill. I highly recommend a trip to the Whitney Museum in NYC to view the exhibition of Grant Wood's work. I find it very engaging. There is also a beautiful book for purchase filled with his creations and interesting essays. On view until June 2018.
