Anna Mary Robertson Moses who is very famous for her simple painting of American farm life is an inspiration to many because she painted Sugaring off when she was 83 and proved age is not the matter but what matters is passion and how you feed your soul. She was called Grandma Moses for the same reason. She didn’t begin to paint seriously until she was in her seventies. Anna had little schooling because life was hard then.

Grandma Moses

She was one among the 10 children. She was engrossed in feeding animals, gathering eggs making soap etc all day long. She couldn’t have proper paints and thus managed with house paint, juice of wild fruits etc. She somehow
became busy to draw but at the age of 12, she had to work as a servant for a nearby family for years.

Finally, at the age of 27, she was married to Thomas Moses who was a farmer. They raised a family of their own. When Anna could no longer do heavy from works in her seventies she started to paint in oils. She included the scenes from her childhood in her pictures. Anna had a remarkable memory and people everywhere loved her pictures because it had happy scenes and soon her works were shown in art galleries. She continued until her death at the age of 101.
