Picture of the Day: Canadian Gothic

In this fun photo, twitter user @PuzzleBethe and her husband recreated Grant Wood’s famous 1930 painting American Gothic, with a Canadian twist. The real painting is in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Fun fact, although many believe the man and woman to be husband and wife, Wood explained to a fan in a letter that the woman is actually his daughter. [source]

What a fun and creative way to make the best of the cold, snowy weather much of Canada is currently experiencing. You can see Grant Wood’s original American Gothic painting below and learn more about the famous artwork here.
