30's Rural Chic

Grant Wood, Arnold Comes of Age (Portrait of Arnold Pyle)

The photos are contemporary, the paintings are classic 30's and the objects are from about the same period (give or take a few years.) All together the colors, graphic integrity and rural grace define our visual fantasy of rural life in the 1930's:
