American Gothic

The American countryside couple. RPPC. Private Collection.

Circa 1910 American couple. RPPC. Private Collection.

This picture reminds me of the famous painting done twenty years later in 1930. This beautiful couple is on farm ground with a wagon and horse peeking to the left and another wagon, barn and house to the right (I see the barn being red). The man is dressed in a light colored Norfolk suit, and his wife is in a simple white cotton or linen dress with the large buttons going down the skirt. She’s wearing square buckle shoes and he the ever-fashionable Victorian boots with the side buttons.

A beautiful picture of a couple living in the American countryside.

RPPC: AZO 1907-1914
