Bruce Johnson's new catalogue raisonne: "In the Spring is the only lithograph in which Grant Wood poses a solitary subject gazing this intently at the viewer. He purposely obscures any identifying details in the man's face using both dark shadows and brilliant white sunlight. As a result, the lithograph transcends from being a portrait of one individual to a symbol of all farmers and their relationship to their land."
