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 loan exchange 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; then the two paintings will travel to Chicago. In Cincinnati, Wood’s paintings will be brought together into dialogue with those of his colleagues John Steuart Curry and Thomas Hart Benton. From 1934, the watershed moment when these Midwesterners were hailed in Time magazine as the greatest American artists of their era, the three have been inextricably bound together. Visitors will be encouraged to compare their 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.
