A REALLY GOOD PAINTING BY GRANT WOOD IN 1930 (the painting of a farm couple posed before a white house) American Gothic is one of the most famous paintings in the history of American art. It is a primary example of Regionalism, a movement that aggressively opposed European abstract art, preferring depictions of rural American subjects rendered in a representational style. The painting has become part of American popular culture, and the couple has been the subject of endless parodies.
