Book by Barbara Feller

Paperback, 80 pages


Creation of an Artist is a fascinating look into the life of well known artist Grant Wood. This insightful book is almost entirely based on Grant Wood's own words and art. Early events were dictated to his secretary, Park Rinard, in an incomplete and therefore unpublished autobiography, Return from Bohemia. Other details were mentioned in letters Wood wrote as a ten-year-old boy, just after moving to Cedar Rapids from rural Iowa.
