American Gothic Painting by Alyne Harris
This is a painting by folk artist Alyne Harris (1942- ) of Gainesville, Florida. Harris' work is featured in many museums, and also in private collections. Her paintings and biography are featured in a number of folk art publications including African American Vernacular Art of the South.
American Gothic is attributed to the famous painting by Grant Wood (1891-1942) which he attributed to Flemish Renaissance art, which he studied in Europe in the 1920s. He intended his painting to be a statement of rural America and was painted in Iowa with his sister and his dentist as models. It became an instant sensation.
This Alyne Harris painting is an example of African American Gothic. The words "American Gothic" is written on the back of canvas board of the painting. Above these words are the word "Alani People."
