♨ ♨ ♨ Happy Birthday to Grant DeVolson Wood, born on February 13, 1891. In this painting Wood’s agent is pointing at the actual landscape he was supposed to be rendering. (via veareflejos aka chasingtaileathers)
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!
