American Gothic House Center Acquires Grant Wood Lithograph

By mlambrecht, December 23, 2014

Eldon— The American Gothic House Center is pleased to announce the acquisition of their second original Grant Wood work.  The lithograph, titled Seed Time and Harvest (1937), is an important piece of Grant Wood history as it highlights his use of the print medium, which was a result of the difficult financial times of the 1930s.

“We are thrilled to add this work to our permanent collection.  We hope this work will enhance visitors’ experiences and further connect members of the community to the American Gothic House Center” said Holly Berg, American Gothic House Center administrator.

The work was purchased with funds contributed by Alliant Energy Foundation, John Deere Ottumwa Works and Walmart.

The work will be on display until June, when the American Gothic House Center will feature a temporary exhibit titled “American Gothic in Stitches:  Quilts inspired by the famous painting.”

For more information contact Holly Berg, American Gothic House Center Administrator, at 641-652-3352 or email TheAmericanGothicHouse@gmail.com.
