Everyone knows her face but few ever knew her name.

The stoic-faced woman in Grant Wood’s famed American Gothic painting was his sister, Nan, perhaps one of his closet friends and observers.

In My Brother, Grant Wood, Nan Wood Graham offers an intimate glimpse of the artist in this full-life biography. Her portrait of her brother is as direct and poignant as the portrait he painted of her.

Through her anecdotes and reminiscences, she also conjures an era when Eastern Iowa was the center of an exciting new movement of art, known as regionalism.

Many photographs and color plates of Wood’s work are included.
