    I would say the work of Grandma Moses is Quintessentially American. Also Thomas Cole, Ansel Adams...

    How about American Gothic by Grant Wood, even if only because it's got "American" in its title.

    Your teacher should give you homework assignments with better instructions. Quintessentially American...Urban? Rural? Folk? Ethnic? Abstract?

    Winslow Homer's "Dressing for the Carnival" (1877) is loaded with definitive imagery of reconstruction-era America. The same can be said of the more subtle symbolism of "The Cotton Pickers" from 1876.

    You also want to look at the work of Thomas Hart Benton, George Bellows, Reginald Marsh and Edward Hopper. These guys were all painting at the height of 20th century Nationalist pride. Grant Wood is for wussy.

    Absolutely. Definitive stupid, tacky American. Not to mention it looks more like Jean Harlow than the Virgin Mary.

    ETA: mtnbk3000, it's a grilled cheese sandwich, not a piece of artwork.

    Some old woman burned her grilled cheese samich and sees the Virgin Mary. She sold it for a pile of money. It's the story of America. No matter how stupid or ridiculous something is, somebody, somewhere, will swoon to buy it.

    Maybe the interpretation of the assignment and explaining why is part of the grading criteria.

    I could make an argument for some graffitti and wall murals - but often it's hard to tell who the artist is.

    My first thought when reading this are the WPA murals (Google "WPA mural" and search images). I've seen variations of this style in numerous public buildings. It's kind of from a lost age now, but, still could apply.

    Here's an example of the style:

    But it isn't a piece of art by an American artist, which is what you stipulated.
