The names behind the faces of 8 famous paintings

Famous paintings are a huge part of history and culture.  Many of them are paintings of people without any identification.  Who was Picasso's Weeping Woman?  Who was the man behind the apple in The Son of Man?  Find out.

American Gothic is a famous painting that was created in 1930. Wood entered the painting in in a competition at the Art Institute of Chicago, winning the bronze medal. Since it came out at the onset of the Great Depression, it was viewed by many as a symbol of the steadfast American spirit. Many saw it as a struggling farmer and his wife who refuse to give up. The woman is actually Wood’s sister. The man, his dentist.

The Son of Man has always been a favorite of mine. The faceless business man wearing a three peice suit. They say that the clothes make the man, but they can never tell you who he really is.
