Fraktur painting, practiced by Pennsylvania German artists from the eighteenth through the
mid-nineteenth centuries, holds an honored place in the history of American arts. Combining pictorial motifs and elaborate calligraphic inscriptions, these distinctive designs served both as records of important family events and celebrations.. marriages and baptisms, for example.. and as handsome decorations for the home. Today, the term "fraktur" often is applied to any painted design that shows the same artful mix of text and illustration.
