The first sketch from the programme's here !

"American Gothic"

was painted  by Grant Wood.

The artist  "combined Americana with European technique. Inspired by the window that recalled the cathedrals he had seen in Europe during his training and travels, [Grant] Wood posed his quintessentially American figures in a "rigid frontal arrangement" that recalls Northern Renaissance art, while mimicking that movement's close attention to detail."
