Overview

There has never been a book like this intertwining the arts and artifacts of both the traditional and the evolving worlds. The Pennsylvania Germans are a remarkable people; some are among the most conservative of Americans, retaining a strong cultural identity to this day, while others have largely assimilated into the larger English world. Folk art and quilts are here, but so is the work of Precisionist painter Charles Demuth and Abstract Expressionist painter Franz Kline. Objects range from needlework, pottery, furniture, and glass to paper, paintings, and metals--including gold and silver! Here is a very personal and extensive historical text illustrated with the works of traditionalists, revivalists, and the avant garde displayed in over 350 color photographs. Pennsylvania German Arts has been written to be both informative and fun to read and is designed to showcase distinctive works of great beauty.
