Conversations around American Gothic

August 30, 2014 to November 16, 2014

The Cincinnati Art Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago will collaborate in a historic partnership involving Grant Wood’s two masterpieces, American Gothic and Daughters of Revolution. For the first time, the iconic American Gothic will appear in Cincinnati alongside the Art Museum’s own Daughters of Revolution. Wood’s iconic paintings will be combined with other quintessential works by artists of the Regionalist Movement including John Steuart Curry’s Baptism in Kansas (Whitney Museum of American Art, New York) and Thomas Hart Benton’s Cradling Wheat (Saint Louis Art Museum). Visitors will be encouraged to compare these works, stimulating lively conversation about the definition of “realism” as an artistic style, small town and rural life, stereotypes, nationalism, and what it means to be an American.
