Grandma Moses

Anna Mary Robertson Moses (September 7, 1860 – December 13, 1961), known by her nickname Grandma Moses, was a renowned American folk artist.

Having begun painting in earnest at the age of 78, she is often cited as an example of an individual successfully beginning a career in the arts at an advanced age.

Her works have been shown and sold in the United States and abroad and have been marketed on greeting cards and other merchandise.

Moses' paintings are among the collections of many museums. The Sugaring Off was sold for US $1.2 million in 2006.
