In the 1950s, she was a household name, and she continues to have admirers in the art world and in the general population throughout the world. Her fame is the result of a number of factors, including good timing, good marketing, and good painting. In this illustrated talk, you will learn about Moses’ early life, her discovery as an artist at the age of 78, and the reasons behind her enduring popularity. You will also discover how Bennington Museum came to be so closely associated with Grandma Moses.
