Puzzle developed from Grant Wood’s American Gothic, 1930 from the Art Institute of Chicago’s collection.

The impetus for the painting came while Wood was visiting the small town of Eldon in his native Iowa. He used his sister and his dentist as models for a farmer and his daughter, dressing them as if they were “tintypes from my old family album.” The highly detailed, polished style and the rigid frontality of the two figures were inspired by Flemish Renaissance art, which Wood studied during his travels to Europe between 1920 and 1928. 

Doing jigsaw puzzles is a perfect way for puzzlers of all ages to take a deeper dive into this visual masterpiece by Wood.
