Visions of Glory: The Painted Churches of Texas

Immigrants to Texas from central Europe in the 19thcentury built simple wooden churches in their new communities, then decorated them in exuberant designs of painted flowers, angels, vines, and clever trompe l’oeil effects. These beautiful painted churches are a glorious part of the artistic and ethnographic history of Texas.
