The acclaimed work of folk artist Anna Mary Robertson, also called Grandma Moses, presents a glance of America's pastoral days. Born in Greenwich, New York in 1860, Robertson knew only agricultural life, leaving her family at an early age to work a nearby farm. After her marriage at age 17, she and her husband resettled in Virginia where they ran their own farm. Robertson didn't begin painting until her 70s, as a response to the pain of her husband's passing.

Though she experienced hardship as a farmer, as an artist, Anna Mary Robertson showed only the natural beauty of rural life.
