Prints and note cards illustrated with Grant Wood's painting titled

“New Road” belongs to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. It was gifted to them by Mr. and Mrs. Irwin Strasburger in 1982. The painting is one of only two Grant Wood works owned by the National Gallery. Permission was granted to reproduce this painting for fund-raising purposes. The oil painting, created in 1939, depicts a pastoral scene about five miles west of Solon. In the foreground is a simple wooden marker which reads "SOLON 5 MI".
