“Grandma Moses and the ‘Primitive’ Tradition” will run from June 11 through Oct. 30 in a temporary exhibition that’s in addition to a permanent Grandma Moses exhibit at the museum. It contains 50 works by Moses and other primitive self-taught painters such as Patsy Santos, Forrest Moses and Wil Moses.
Grandmas Moses, whose real name was Anna Mary Robertson Moses, won worldwide fame in the 1940s with her paintings of rural American farm life.
The exhibit commemorates the 150th anniversary of her birth in 1860.
The museum’s permanent display of Moses’ work on the first floor will remain on view during this special exhibition.
