GWAGGrant Wood - American Gothic 1930 - Art Institute of Chicago

American Gothic, the iconic painting by Grant Wood, is coming to London next year - the first time it will have been seen outside of North America.

The Royal Academy said the work will be part of an exhibition on Depression Era art.

It shows an Idaho farmer holding a pitchfork with his wife by his side and a house in the background.

America After the Fall: Painting in the 1930s opens on 25 February 2017 and will run until 4 June.

American Gothic was part of the American Regionalism movement which saw artists attempt to reflect the regions affected by the Great Depression, triggered by the Wall Street Crash of 1929.
