American Gothic is a Painting by Grant Wood in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is an American painter with European training.
Wood's inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House and his decision to paint the house along with "the kind of people I fancied should live in that house." The painting shows a farmer standing beside his spinster daughter. The figures were modeled by the artist's sister and their dentist.
The woman is dressed in a colonial print apron evoking 19th-century Americana, and the couple are in the traditional roles of men and women, the man's pitchfork symbolizing hard labor. It is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American Art and has been widely parodied in American popular culture.
This is my depiction being American Feline Gothic. Instead of being the father and spinster daughter, in my panting they are Edward and Catherine a married couple that have worked hard all of their lives and raised many children in the country…and of course they are feline people and not humans!
Google American Gothic and see the images of so many artists that have their own renditions of this painting. Just so funny that I had to do my own.
