Regarding Grandma Moses. On December 13, 1961 President Kennedy paid the following tribute to Grandma Moses; "The death of Grandma Moses removed a beloved figure from American life. The directness and vividness of her paintings restored a primitive freshness to our perception of the American scene. Both her work and her life helped our nation renew its pioneer heritage and recall its roots in the countryside and on the frontier. All Americans mourn her loss."
