"Grant Wood, His Father's Triumphant Son"

The subject of a major retrospective exhibition at the Whitney Museum last year, Grant Wood (1891-1942) has recently emerged as a particularly complex figure in twentieth-century American art. His endlessly parodied American Gothic (1930) is only the best known among a number of strange pictures by this talented and sometimes emotionally alienated Midwestern Regionalist. With the publication of her new monograph, Grant Wood's Secrets (University of Delaware Press, 2019), art historian Sue Taylor joins psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Kathryn Zerbe, to discuss fascinating but little known aspects of Wood's life and art.  This program is co-sponsored with the Oregon Psychoanalytic Center.

Speakers: Sue Taylor, Ph.D., Professor Emerita of Art History, Portland State University, presenter; Kathryn Zerbe, M.D., Affiliate Professor of Psychiatry, Oregon Health and Science University, Faculty, Oregon Psychoanalytic Center, discussant

When: May 12, 2019 at 2 p.m.
