Grant Wood's Fertility (1939) celebrates the agricultural revolution on the Great Plains.

  1. I like Wood's artwork, he has such a unique style.

    You might also like to see some of his murals in the Iowa State University library:

    These murals were designed by Woods and executed by artists from the public works programs of the 1930s.

    Agree. Like his work. What I think is remarkable is how sterile his fields look, not unlike they actually look today, but not in 1939!
