The great 20th-century folk artist painted rural life scenes embodying a sense of an idyllic bygone America. A large selection of her works is always on view, including her whimsical painted desk. The Museum also offers a fine collection of paintings, pottery, fine furniture, and historical objects that represent the rich heritage of Vermont.
