The models who were used in “American Gothic” standing by the painting by Grant Wood. 1930: American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. Wood's inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House, and a decision to paint the house along with "the kind of people I fancied should live in that house.
The models used in the “American Gothic” painting by Grant Wood. The painting shows a farmer standing beside a woman that has been interpreted to be either his wife or his daughter. The figures were modeled by the artist's sister and their dentist. This is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American art, and has been widely parodied in American popular culture.
The subjects for Grant Wood’s, American Gothic, pose beside the iconic painting in 1942. The painting, which is now at the Art Institute, portrays a farmer and his spinster daughter. The models were Grant Wood’s sister and their family dentist.
As far as US-American art goes, few paintings are as iconic as Grant Wood’s American Gothic. Fun fact: the couple depicted in the painting were modeled after Wood’s sister and dentist, pictured above posing next to the finished artwork. Did those two ever smile?

For his project titled "Ara Solis", Guatemalan photographer Luis González Palma created a series of images representing small models of 15th century sailing boats, symbolically ‘crossing the seas’ of different sleeping beds. Ideas of migration, intimacy and dreams of the future are brought about in this wonderful series.

Form- This picture shows a three-dimensional shape of a wine glass. It is a very realistic picture with bright colors like aqua and yellow to make it stand out more. Also, it has a more natural background.
looking from a wine glass perspective of above and below sea with mixture of warm colours to set this beautiful scene, almost like a tropical place worth visiting. The bright colours of the sky and fishes in sea makes us become more drawn to this image
So beautiful and fantasy like. I love how in this image you are taken into a whole other world when looking at the glass of water. Inside this glass you see a whole new world of creatures and colors. The artist did a very nice job of blending these to images together and making it as real as possible.

Art has been a part of the world for centuries and has changed in every way over the years. Art is used as a form of expression of ones feelings or ideas. Without art we would not have many of the great things we have today because one has to draw the idea in order to produce it into a product or finalized painting. Art is important to me because it allows me to see the wonderful things we can do with everyday objects....

The Great Blizzard of 1888 brought 40-50 inches of snow to many states, including Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey. It’s said that the storm wrapped areas from the Chesapeake all the way north to Maine. Along with the heavy snow came snow drifts as high as 50ft because of 45mph winds.

Mar 12 1888 The most severe winter storm ever to hit the New York City region reaches blizzard proportions, costing hundreds of lives and millions of dollars in property damage.
March 11, 1888: The Great Blizzard of 1888 begins. Snowfall of up to 60 inches and 45 mph winds paralyzed the East Coast. In places the snowdrifts were up to 50 feet tall. Railway, ground transport, and even fire stations were immobilized, and telegraph and telephone lines went down. The scene above is of New York city, where nearly half of the 400 resulting deaths occurred.
NYC in The Great Blizzard of 1888. The Great Blizzard of '88 (March 11–March 14, 1888) was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the U.S. Snowfalls of 20–60 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet. Railroads were shut down and people were confined to their houses for up to a week.
The Great Blizzard of 1888 - New York City. This was the straw that broke the camels back & the officials started the underground infrastructure that became New York as we know it. Everything went underground that could go underground. Trains, wiring etc. Now with Hurricane Sandy we have to even re-think that.I heard they plan on building dams.Even at a couple of million a piece, it will cost less than the flood damage did.Like 9/11,the hurricane has changed how we will live.

I have a couple super cute pictures of me and my two leetle seesters doing synchronized cartwheels on the beach in CA. They're pretty adorable, but this picture is way more awesome.
Deb Schwedhelm, Florida This is a tough question. I have lots of images that I love from over the years, that I’m connected to for some reason or another, but I would have to say that this one is my current favorite and will most likely always rank up there as one of my all-time favorites. A simple moment of a child having fun on the beach — a moment of light, childhood, joy, peace, freedom and serendipity.

Before there were books and movies, there were legends and myths. With powerful heroes, compelling arcs and, most importantly, fascinating and sometimes deadly beasts, these were the stories that our ancestors spread and preserved as a representation of their hopes, dreams, and fears. More than anything else, the beasts that they imagined can tell us something about their culture. There's a great diversity to the creatures they imagined, too! We all know about dragons and valkyries, but what ...
