Early Sugaring OffGrandma Moses...
Grandma Moses' colorful and lively "Early Sugaring Off", with its sprinkling of glitter to add a sparkle to the snow, is a prime example of American Primitive art.

Born Anna Mary Robertson in Washington County, New York. Having never had an art lesson, at age 76 she began painting simple, but realistic scenes of rural life. She had her first one-woman show at age 80 and painted 25 pictures in the year after her 100th birthday. Critics have praised her work for its freshness, innocence, and humanity.

Next "Early Sugaring Off ", oil & glitter on canvas..35"x 45" (1944)
