Robert H. Gundry and … the farmer from American Gothic

On the left is Robert H. Gundry, Professor Emeritus of Westmont College, Santa Barbara. On the right is the farmer from Grant Wood’s American Gothic (1930), modeled on Wood’s dentist, Dr Byron McKeeby.

We wonder if, by some chance, they might be related?

  1. Ha ha, yeah you’re so right. He totally looks like the guy in the painting!! They both have such long faces. Reminds me of that Grant Wood quote: “I imagined American Gothic people with their faces stretched out long to go with this American Gothic house.”
