    I believe that the American Gothic one was the original. As in, those people were the original models for the painting, not just random people they found for the picture. I remember reading about it

    I thought I read that the man in American Gothic was the artists dentist… (quickly looks up in wiki) “American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood…The figures were modeled by the artist’s sister and their dentist.”

    “American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. Wood’s inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House, and a decision to paint the house along with “the kind of people I fancied should live in that house.”[1] The painting shows a farmer standing beside his spinster daughter.[2] The figures were modeled by the artist’s sister and their dentist.” – wiki
