American Regionalist


An American term, Regionalism refers to the work of a group of rural artists, mostly from the Midwest, who came to prominance in the 1930's. Not being part of a coordinated movement, regionalists often had an idiosyncratic style or point of view. What they shared, among themselves and among other American Scene painters, was a humble, antimodernist style and a fondness for depicting everyday life. However, their rural conservatism put them at odds with the urban and leftist Social Realists of the same era. The three best-known regionalists were Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart Curry, and Grant Wood, the painter of the best-known and one of the greatest works of American art, American Gothic.
