This classic print by P. Buckley Moss is of an Amish couple riding in their horse and buggy. There are two swans standing in a pond nearby. The print came from a P. Buckley Moss collector and has been signed three times, one at the bottom of the print and twice to the side of the print in pencil. Patricia Buckley Moss, also known as P. Buckley Moss (born May 20, 1933), is an American artist. Reared in Staten Island, New York, she is known for her portrayals of rural landscapes and life in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. In 1964, Jack Moss' work took the family to Waynesboro, Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley. Appreciating the rural scenery, Patricia Moss began portraying it in her art. She was particularly drawn to the Amish and Mennonite people who farmed in the countryside and has portrayed their figures in iconic ways. She also frequently features Canada geese. Selling out a one-person museum exhibition in 1967, Moss started to market her work more seriously. The subtle styling and calm nature of her work drew wide spread acclaim. Her art has been collected by people in Europe and Japan as well as by Americans. She signs her work as "P. Buckley Moss." The P. Buckley Moss Museum opened in Waynesboro in 1989. It has grown to attract roughly 45,000 visitors each year. In the marketing of her artwork and museum, Moss is called "The People's Artist," a term used by the journalist Charles Kuralt about her in 1988. The work is in excellent condition with a nice frame and matting. The frame measures 14" by 14", sight size is 8 ¼" by 8 ¼".
