[1961 - Grandma Moses (Anna Mary Robertson Moses),
artist, dies at age 101]
When I Grow Up
What will little William be,
To give his career a needed boost,
Note: Grandma Moses was about seventy when she began her career as a self-taught painter. She did not sell her first painting until almost age eighty. Soon this special artist attained recognition and fame for her primitive style of homespun works. She was so long in coming to her art because she grew up in an era in which the traditional role of women (particularly farm wives) was to work hard at keeping up a home and raising children. She did that rather well by most accounts, starting out with her husband as tenant farmers, and bearing ten children.
