Capture the Moment: Grandma Moses

In 1938, at the age of 78, Anna Mary Robinson Moses began her painting career. Prior to that, she had a passion for embroidering pictures with yarn, as well as for making quilted objects. Eventually, her arthritis made it too difficult to embroider, so she turned to painting, a passion she had since childhood. When her arthritis made painting difficult for one hand, she switched to the other. She painted for three decades and produced more than 1,500 works of art, many of which now hang in museums around the country.
