Provenance:

Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Pleasant Hill (Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
United States of America -- Iowa -- Linn County -- Cedar Rapids
Scope and Contents:
The folders include a worksheet, a garden plan, a detailed narrative description of the property and garden, a plant list, geological survey, copies of articles on Grant Wood, and photocopies of articles about the garden.
General:
The gardens at Pleasant Hill were inspired by the early architecture of the area and the designs of regionalist painter, Grant Wood. The residence was constructed in 1932 to reflect the architectural history of Iowa, using original structral elements from other houses and antique furniture. On December 20, 1989, the home was designated as a National Historic Site. At the entrance to the garden, Grant Wood designed a grape arbor. Stones from a quarry near Stone City, Iowa and a grist mill stone were incorporated into garden seats. The owner chose species of flowers and trees that are either indigenous to the zone or have proven successful through the harsh Iowa winters, producing a continuous show of color in summer, spring, and fall.
Persons and firms associated with the property and garden include: Bruce McKay (architect, designer, builder, 1932-?); Grant Wood (artist, 1933); and Mrs. E. W. Spence (landscape architect).
Related Materials:
Pleasant Hill related holdings consist of 2 folders (4 35 mm. slides)

Arrangement:
Due to the small size of this collection, items are categorized into one series consisting of eight folders. Items are arranged chronologically within each folder.
Biographical / Historical:
Grant Wood was born near Anamosa, Iowa, in 1891. In 1901 he moved with his family to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where he developed an interest in art, and participated in the Cedar Rapids Art Association. He attended the Minneapolis School of Design and Handicraft as well as the Art Institute of Chicago. Wood taught art in Cedar Rapids public schools, and became an active member of the Iowa art community, promoting local artists and public art projects. In 1932, he and fellow artists founded the Stone City Art Colony. The colony only lasted two years, and in 1933 he became an art professor at the University of Iowa, where he would continue to teach until his death. Wood also served as spokesman for the concept of Regionalism in art and lectured throughout the United States. In 1934 he was appointed director of the Federal Public Works of Art Projects for Iowa, and organized artists for public mural projects. Grant Wood died in 1942, at the age of 51.
Related Materials:
The Archives of American Art holds several additional small collections related to the Grant Wood papers, including a thesis by Kenneth Goldberg entitled, "The Paintings of Grant Wood," microfilmed on reel 420; the Marian S. Mayer research material on Grant Wood, partially microfilmed on reels 863-864; and Return from Bohemia, a typescript of the beginning of an autobiography written by Grant Wood and microfilmed on reel D24.

Eighteen scrapbooks and albums of news clippings, post cards, letters, snapshots, sketches and related ephemera on Grant Wood assembled over a period of 40 years by Nan Wood Graham, Grant Wood's sister, are located at the Figge Art Museum, Davenport, Iowa. Thirteen of the scrapbooks have been digitized and are available online as the University of Iowa Libraries' Figge Art Museum Grant Wood Digital Collection. The Figge's archive also contains several hundred artifacts related to Grant Wood.
Provenance:
The collection was donated by Zelia Mitchell, a friend of the Ness family, in 1984 and was microfilmed upon receipt. The two letters to Eaton, with the enclosed Stone City Art Colony brochure, were donated by Charles E. Feinberg, 1955-1962, and also microfilmed.
