“An un-ironic (thank God) treasure-trove of amazingly researched information that elevates the most Balto-centric one-time row house kitsch to its proper place in art history.”
“The Painted Screens of Baltimore: An Urban Folk Art Revealed is a stunningly beautiful book that traces the history of painted screens in Baltimore. Elaine Eff profiles three generations of screen painters and lovingly shows how these artists crafted a unique identity for their city. Eff’s majestic portrait of a city, its people, and their art will forever stand as a model study for the fields of American art and folklore.”
–William Ferris, author of The Storied South: Voices of Writers and Artists
