Mose Tolliver Sold at Auction Prices

b. 1925 - d. 2006

Artist Mose Tolliver (1920-2006), also known as Mose T, was an Alabama-born folk artist. Tolliver worked at a furniture factory until an accident in the 1960s left both his legs crushed. His inner drive to paint took over as he painted on anything he could get his hands on, from tabletops to old metal trays, and he sometimes created as many as 10 pieces a day. Mose Tolliver's art for sale was born.

Artist Mose Tolliver creates from the heart, and in his first published interview he said he was not interested in art, but just wanted to paint his pictures. Mose Tolliver's paintings include Self-portrait and Queen Love. Featured in a multitude of folk art collections, Mose Tolliver's paintings are also exhibited at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American Art. Purchase unique folk art paintings to bring intrigue and interest to your art collection.

            Mose Ernest Tolliver (Mose T) Alabama, (1920/25-2006) abstract nude oil on board Signed lower left. Biography from the Smithsonian American Art Museum: In the late 1960s, Mose Tolliver was forced to retire from his job in a Montgomery, Alabama, furniture factory after a thousand-pound crate of marble fell from a forklift and crushed his legs. His former employer encouraged him to start painting, and Tolliver began to create images with house paint on pieces of plywood, Masonite, or old furniture. Unable to stand without crutches, he used to sit on his bed to paint, balancing the board on his knees. Recognition came in the 1980s with a solo show at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, and a folk art exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery, in Washington, D.C. Tolliver is known for his vibrant images of women, fantasy animals, and religious subjects, and he could paint up to ten pictures in one day.
