  11. 11. Grant Wood<br />Daughters of Revolution, painted in 1932, took a pointed shot at the Daughters of the American Revolution, a group which Wood found ridiculous and contradictory to the extreme. <br />Wood felt the DAR were "people who are trying to set up an aristocracy of birth in a Republic." <br />
  12. 12. Grant Wood<br /><ul><li>Wood further disliked the DAR because of a controversy over a World War I memorial window that the artist had been commissioned to do in the late 1920's for his hometown, Cedar Rapids.
  13. 13. Wood found that the best stained glass factories were in Germany, and spent significant time overseas working on the window with German craftsmen.
  14. 14. Upon his return and the installation of the window, the local DAR chapter protested, claiming that it had been made by America's enemies and thus dishonored the memory of those it sought to memorialize. </li></li></ul><li>
