Book Synopsis
Trace the history of nineteenth century German-American artists who decorated mission churches erected by their immigrant countrymen in North America. The majority of the churches were Roman Catholic, but a few of them belonged to the Protestant faith. The activities of these artists included the design and construction of altars and pulpits, the painting of altarpieces and murals, the decorative stenciling of the structural supports in church interiors, the installation of stained glass windows, and the sculpting of religious statues. The main focus of the book will be on the German-American painters whose themes and individual styles will be demonstrated with over 100 accompanying black & white illustrations.
