Anne Mary Robertson Moses

6-cent Grandma Moses stamp
This 6-cent stamp was designed by Robert J. Jones and features Moses' painting "July Fourth." It was issued May 1, 1969, in Washington, DC, as part of the American Folklore Issue.

Anne Mary Robertson Moses, better known as Grandma Moses, (1860-1961) began painting in 1936 after she retired from farm work. Although she was into her seventies when she began painting, her paintings of traditional rural life captured viewer’s visions of an old time America. Today, she still remains as one of America’s most beloved female artists.
