Marguerite Bride, Berkshire Artist
Grandma Moses: American Modern restores Moses’s rightful place within the canon of mid-century American Art. One of the best-known artists of her time, and a true American legend, Anna Mary Robertson “Grandma” Moses (1860–1961) was often marginalized as a latter-day “folk” painter or a phenomenon of popular media. This 128- page book looks at her paintings and the artist’s compelling biography to reassert her role in the development of a culture of modernist art at mid-century. Presenting fresh research, several scholars examine Moses’s name, public persona, painted world, and wildly popular place in American pop culture. $30.
