Grant Wood: Lithographs

Sunday, December 24, 2017

Grant Wood, born and raised in Iowa, achieved international recognition in the mid 1930s for promoting a style of art that depicted everyday scenes of Midwestern life. Coined "Regionalism," Wood, along with fellow Midwestern artists Thomas Hart Benton and John Steuart Curry, gained popularity during the Great Depression for focusing on American scenes that upheld supposedly American values. Wood produced 19 lithographs in his lifetime; 17 of these are in the Springfield Art Museum's permanent collection. This exhibit will examine Wood's thematic concerns and role in the growth and popularity of printmaking in America.
