DR. SUE TAYLOR
Professor Emerita of Art History
Portland State University

Hosted in conjunction with the Grant Wood Art Colony, University of Iowa.

In Grant Wood’s Secrets, the title of her talk and new book, author and professor Sue Taylor incorporates original research and close readings of Grant Wood’s iconic, as well as lesser-known, artworks to reveal how the artist’s sometimes anguished psychology and art was shaped by his close relationship with his mother.

Presenting Wood’s unfinished autobiography “Return from Bohemia” for the first time ever, Sue Taylor integrates the artist’s own recollections into fresh interpretations of his art. Dr. Sue Taylor holds advanced degrees in art history from Roosevelt University and the University of Chicago. Taylor has worked as a museum curator and newspaper critic as well as a professor of art history.
