The Real Sitters for Grant Wood's American Gothic

I love this photo of the couple who posed for Grant Wood's American Gothic. He looks exactly like the painting because of his bald head. Her curly hair style makes her a little bit harder to recognize but the face is the same. via

I saw this painting at the MFA in Boston. It has always intrigued me. I took several pictures of the window. I am convinced they are are being watched by someone inside. (I know I am a bit suspicious) I love to build a mystery. Happy Valentine's Day! Hugs, Bonnie
