Charming ‘Snowballing’ scene sent to her discoverer
Description  

Christmas card featuring one of Moses’s idyllic winter scenes entitled ‘Snowballing’ on the front and a printed Christmas sentiment inside, 5.25 x 6.5, signed inside in fountain pen. Includes the original transmittal envelope, addressed in her own hand to her first patron, “Louis J. Calder, New York City.” In fine condition. Moses was unknown until she was discovered in 1938—at the age of 78—by art collector Louis J. Calder; a year later her works were featured in an exhibition called ‘Contemporary Unknown American Painters’ at the Museum of Modern Art, and she was quickly elevated to nationwide fame. A nice behind-the-scenes association from one of the more unusual stories in recent art history. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
