Rarely do we get a chance to see the behind-the-scenes of the making of a piece of art. Even the iconic and routinely parodied American Gothic by Grant Wood always had an air of mystery. But this photo from the Smithsonian removes much of the mystery–his sister and his dentist were the models. The models stood separately and never stood in front of the house. The house is still standing in Eldon, Iowa.
