Who is Maud Lewis?

Maud Lewis (1903-1970) was a Canadian folk artist known for her distinctive and colorful paintings of rural life in Nova Scotia, Canada. She is particularly renowned for her simple, yet charming depictions of landscapes, animals, and everyday scenes. Maud Lewis lived most of her life in poverty and struggled with physical disabilities, including severe arthritis, which made it difficult for her to move. Despite these challenges, she continued to paint and sell her artwork.

Maud Lewis gained recognition for her art when her paintings were discovered by a local art collector, and her work began to gain popularity in the 1960s. Her art has since become highly sought after, and her story has been the subject of books, documentaries, and even a feature film titled "Maudie."

Today, Maud Lewis is considered one of Canada's most celebrated folk artists, and her paintings are treasured for their unique style and the glimpse they offer into rural life in Nova Scotia during the mid-20th century. Many of her works are displayed in museums and private collections, preserving her legacy as an important figure in Canadian art history.
