But real art, according to the former Iowa farmhand, lies in the cornfields and hoglots of the Midwest, or in a harvest crew working through the night, or In a farmer's hands and eyes. * * * Artist Summers — called the coming successor to Grant Wood —has been trying to capture the sweat and strain and worry of farming for most of his 43 years. He began art study with the pictures in his grandmother's family Bible on a Mills County farm in Iowa. He pursued the study in Teacher's College at Peru, Neb., and later at the University of Nebraska and Yale University's School of Fine Arts.

"By that time," he said, "I knew that farmers are interested in the basic things of life: their crops, their land, the weather, the markets." "With his work as a soil conservation artist, and his illustrations for farm manuals,' Summers still finds time to pursue his remembrance of things past. "You read of bumper crops," he says, "and parity prices. But you don't see a farmer's eyes when a hail storm cuts his cornfields flat in minutes.
