“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". 


Availability of mat colors and frame woods varies.


You may also come in or call the library with questions about any of these items.
