"Grandma Moses didn't start to paint seriously until she was almost 70 years old. At first, no one paid much attention to her pictures. But by the time she died at the age of 101, Grandma Moses had become one of America's most famous and best-loved artists."
This biography introduces Grandma Moses in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Grandma Moses, her time, and her art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages each. Ages 4 and up.
