Additional Information

Emily Lunde was a self-taught artist who first received national attention in the 1970s when art authorities (such as Robert Bishop, Director of the Museum of American Folk Art in New York City) took notice of her paintings. Much of her art was a form of “memory painting,” similar in spirit to the art of Grandma Moses, in which Lunde recalled her earlier life experiences in northern Minnesota. In her later years, Lunde lived in North Dakota, where she continued to document rural subjects.
