American Gothic Cross Stitch Pattern - Grant Wood

What an interesting story can be found in the painting, American Gothic, by American artist Grant Wood. The house in the background (what is now known as the American Gothic House in Eldon, Iowa, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and owned by the State Historical Society of Iowa) was the inspiration for this painting. It was the Gothic windows in the gables of the house that caught Wood’s attention. When first looking at the painting, one would think it was a realistic painting. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Wood painted the house with the type of people he imagined should live in the house. The two people standing together in front of the house – his sister, Nan, and his dentist, Dr. B. H. McKeeby, never actually posed together in front of the house during the painting.

This painting brought instant fame to Grant Wood and is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American art. It is in the art collection at the Art Institute of Chicago.

5 of 5 American Gothic- 1st purchase from Serenity stitc April 11, 2018
Reviewer: Kim from Australia  
Hi just wanted to say thanks for the perfect download I bought from you. I am a cross stitcher from the 80's who hasn't done cross stitch for many years due to the lack of inspirational designs! Now you guys have re-ignited my love for the craft). My American Gothic design is perfect, it was so easy to use your website and to actually buy my design. I had the download ready for me to print within seconds and the quality is beautiful. As a first time customer my experience has been easy and quick. I did need to contact the girls about whether to order the regular or the large print version and my email question was answered very quickly! I ended up purchasing the regular sized print and am now eagerly awaiting my cloth from another company....if only that was downloadable too!!!!
So summing up my overall experience with Serenity Stitchworks was exceptional and I would (and do ) highly recommend them as a fantastic site to order charts from.
Thank you :)))))))))

5 of 5 American Gothic Cross Stitch Pattern - Grant Wood December 15, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Indianapolis, IN United States  
Have not started it yet, but the pattern is perfect and should be fairly easy to do.  Had a small problem with the download, but customer service quickly fixed the issue.  Would definitely shop with them again.

5 of 5 Best detailng and color palette ever! September 16, 2017
Reviewer: Jackie Lohrey from Green Bay, WI United States  
I had originally purchased what I thought was the same pattern from another company and was very disappointed in the small color palette. I had already started working on it when I found this pattern but I scrapped it and started over. Difficult enough for someone like me who likes intricate patterns but easy enough for an advanced beginner. This will take some time to finish but is destined to become the base for my new decorating scheme!
