Born Anna Mary Robertson Moses, Grandma Moses developed a large following late in life for folk-style depictions of rural domestic and farm life. Initially a self-taught craft, her small works depict people maple sugaring, preparing dinner, or picking berries, painted in a straightforward, flat style. Quickly embraced by the public after being discovered by a Manhattan art collector, Grandma Moses became a symbol of American hope during the Cold War era. Her images were extensively reproduced, and in 1969 one was featured on a commemorative U.S. postage stamp.
