Susan Daul: Fraktur Artist

Posted on | July 29, 2008 | Comments Off on Susan Daul: Fraktur Artist

I discovered these pieces this afternoon and fell in love. Folk art artist Susan Daul creates simple framed artworks called Fraktur. Fraktur are a highly artistic and elaborate 18th century and 19th century illuminated folk art drawings created by the Pennsylvania Dutch. “Some of her Fraktur reflect the reworking of a period piece, but most of her designs are original and come from the excitement she feels for this fascinating art form.” (traditionalfolkart.com) I love the colors and ornate frames she creates for the pieces. Super fun and whimsical. Prices range for prints from $72-$175 and original paintings will run you from $350-$2500.Check out more from Susan on her website: susandaulfolkart.com.
