These three artists painted mainly landscapes. Grant Wood is the painter responsible for the painting titled “American Gothic” - the painting of the old farming couple in front of the farmhouse with the man holding the pitchfork. This is probably his most iconic piece now. He’s even painted a couple of self-portraits. Thomas Hart Benton painted a picture depicting Achilles and Hercules of Ancient Greek culture.

His paintings deal more with city and ancient culture life than the midwestern, like Grant Wood’s did. John Steuart Curry’s paintings deal more with animals and landscapes than they do people and landscapes. However, despite the differences, there are plenty of similarities between the painters. They’re all part of the regionalist art movement, which moved to paint more of what was around painters than anything else.
