1st ed.
A unique introduction to an important American Artist. When Grandma Moses looks out her window, she sees a world of spotted cows, a world of thunderstorms, rain-drenched fields, and hand-washed laundry flapping in the wind. This stunning picture book introduces children of all ages to the work of legendary artist Grandma Moses. Beginning in the spring -- full of thunderstorms and scenes of laundry flapping in the wind -- Nikola-Lisa's lyrical text captures the seasons on a farm and highlights the simple yet wonderful moments depicted in Grandma Moses's folk art paintings. The experience is made all the more intimate by Grandma Moses's journal excerpts, which give readers a first-hand look at what inspired the artist. With its paintings and descriptions of hay rides in the fall, ice-skating in winter, and flower-gathering in the spring and summer, The Year with Grandma Moses celebrates an important American artist and shares her special world with others. When Grandma Moses (born Anna Mary Robertson) was in her seventies, her paintings were discovered by a New York art collector. By her 100th birthday, Grandma Moses had become one of the most well-known and beloved artists of her time. She died in 1961 at the age of 101.
