Christmas

Artist:
Grandma Moses, born Greenwich, NY 1860-died Hoosick Falls, NY 1961
Medium:
oil and tempera on pressed wood
Dimensions:
16 1/8 × 20 1/8 in. (41 × 51.1 cm)
Type:
Painting
Folk Art
Date:
1958
Description:
Grandma Moses painted many winter scenes of farm life in which adults and children happily do their chores and play in the snow. She painted only cheerful images that were based on her memories of growing up on a farm and of being a farmwife herself. In this painting the people talking and laughing together evoke a nostalgic ideal of community life, which the artist emphasized through small stylized buildings and bright colors. The buildings and looping fences create a two-dimensional pattern on the pure white snow that underscores the picturesque, storybook scene.
This artwork is currently on view on the first floor of the Museum in the Folk Art galleries.
