Grant Wood: A Life
Author Tripp Evans takes an in-depth examination of the iconic American Artist Grant Wood and the factors that influenced much of his work in his book Grant Wood: A Life.

Evans delves into this question and many more in his look at the artist behind American Gothic and many more of Wood's most important works.
