Intolerance



Daughters of the Revolution by Grant Wood, Cincinnati Art Museum.

Wood pokes fun at the prim and proper ladies and their intolerance. This is the only "satire" Wood owned up to, but many of his other works fit that definition too, even the beloved American Gothic.

Thank you Martha, as soon as it opened it brought a smile to my face, so reminds me of some of my family.

That's great! Thank you, I had not seen that Wood before.

Thanks as well, Martha!

I guess I've been too long in the mind set that Grant Wood was a "one-trick" pony with the overseen, over satired American Gothic....

A trip through his gallery from the link you provided showed me an artist I need to further investigate!

Thank you!
