Who were the models that posed for Grant Wood's famous painting, American Gothic?

Answer:

HIS SISTER & HIS DENTIST

Grant Wood thought his mother would be perfect to depict the ideals of rural America in American Gothic, but he was worried that standing for so long would be too exhausting for her, so he asked his sister Nan to wear his mother's apron and pin while posing, and recruited his 62-year-old dentist to model the man.
