Grandma Moses was an American artist known for her pastoral landscape paintings. She represented scenes through flat patterns of cross-stitching and used bright color schemes. Born Anna Mary Robertson on September 7, 1860, in Greenwich, NY, she didn’t take up painting until her late 70s when arthritis made embroidering difficult.


In 1939, the New York art collector Louis Caldor stumbled across Moses’s work in a drugstore window while traveling upstate through Hoosick Falls, NY. After inquiring who made them, he drove to her farm and purchased 15 of her paintings on the spot. 


The artist produced around 2,000 paintings before her death at age 101 on December 13, 1961, in Hoosick Falls, NY. Today, her works are included in collections at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Bennington Museum in Vermont.
