Wood was inspired to paint the American Gothic House in Eldon, Iowa, along with “the kind of people I fancied should live in that house.” It depicts a farmer standing beside a woman who has been interpreted to be his sister. The figures were modelled by Wood’s sister Nan Wood Graham and their dentist Dr Byron McKeeby. The woman is dressed in a colonial print apron evoking 19th-century Americana, and the man is holding a pitchfork. American Gothic is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American pop art scene.
