Art in the Library
Grant Wood Collection
The picture to the right is of the painting "Appraisal" by Grant Wood. It is one of two Grant Wood items owned by Carnegie-Stout Public Library. "Appraisal" comes from Wood's mature period in which he also painted "American Gothic."
Originally titled "Clothes," the painting offers a humorous appraisal of city and country lifestyles. The paintings can be viewed at the Dubuque Museum of Art.
