Grandma Moses

Alexandra Wallner, the author and artist behind Betsy Ross and Abigail Adams, offers another illustrated biography of a celebrated American in Grandma Moses. The book follows Anna Mary Robertson through her childhood on a late 19th-century New York farm. Her early interest in painting necessarily remained secondary to her duties, until late in life. Wallner's simple folk-art-inspired illustrations seem ideally suited to the life and work of her subject. -- Publishers Weekly

"The illustrations invoke the primitive style of Grandma Moses and are filled with all the details of a simpler life now long past. From her first large picture created on the fireboard at her home when she ran out of wallpaper to her modest paintings with their childlike innocence and wonder Grandma Moses is celebrated as a woman who believed 'life is what we make of it.'" -- Barnes and Noble
