A Talk on Anna Mary Robertson Moses
Jane Kallir of Galerie St. Etienne
Sunday, February 9
Grandma Moses’ painting captures her vision of the upstate countryside in winter, with farm houses, barns and animals in the snow. Her work embodies a certain attitude toward well-being and abundance. That she was discovered as an artist when she was already in her eighties, by a specialist in German Expressionism, Dr. Otto Kallir, the founder of Galerie St. Etienne, is consistent with how such art (once termed folk art, later outsider, and now self-taught) is indicative of America’s vernacular culture and also came to be esteemed for its kinship with modernism.
