Window screen paintings are disappearing from our fast paced high tech world. The few screens that remain remind us of life in early and mid 20th century Baltimore.
Screen painting was once considered a working-class art, unrecognized as a true art form. In light of the immense joy and warmth, awe and wonderment, that painted screens bring to those who gaze upon them, their artistic significance is underrated.
The magic of painted screens remains in the hearts of many Baltimoreans today.
