Letter from the Administrator
Mary Robertson, better known as Grandma Moses, didn’t try painting until her late 70s. She spent her life as a farm wife and mother, selling homemade food to support her family. She drew inspiration from life on the farm and as a hobby, she would work on needlework and quilts. When arthritis made it too difficult to continue with embroidery, Anna Mary decided to try painting her farm scenes instead. She was self-taught and used supplies from around the house. After a New York art collector stumbled upon her work, she gained massive popularity and her work was exhibited around the world.
