    Who are the people posing in painting, one thread to discover the story of some painting like this one

    Grant Wood recruits his sister Nan (1899-1990) as a model of the woman, dressed in a colonial printed apron imitating the popular American style of the nineteenth century. The man is inspired by Wood dentist, Dr. Byron McKeeby (1867-1950)

    Actual subjects of American Gothic -1930

    They still don't look amused, do they.

    You know that expression? "We are not amused"?

    Commonly attributed to the British Queen Victoria, supposedly after a dinner guest had told a "spicy" story. It connotes someone who is what we call a 'sourpuss'. Stern and stoic.

    To put it the opposite way, we are most amused to see you Dalia. :smiliehug:
