Anna Mary Robertson Moses (1860-1961) is much more widely known as Grandma Moses. She was an American folk artist who worked primarily with paint and with yarn embroidery; she started her professional work as an artist at the age of 78.

Condition: The card is lightly toned in places on the verso and has a small strip of discoloration at the blank lower edge of the page with the message. Generally very good.
