Luftlmalerei | House Paintings in Oberammergau

The painting is most religious character in particularly involving figures of saints as well as manifold scenes all around the Passion Play theme in Oberammergau. In Southern Germany and Italy Lüftlmalerei is a handicraft method of wall-paintings originally applied for decorating the baroque facades. In 18th century the method began to become popular in the foothills region of the Alps, where wealthy traders or people peasants and craftsmen displayed their wealth by means of opulently painted facades. The Painting technique is to called Fresco Technique, the mineral basis of water colors are applied to wet freshly laid plaster. They become a fixed layer of color after colors dry, insoluble to water. The necessity to work quickly in the fresh air (Luft), led to the belief that the term "Lüftlmalerei" is some how connected to this particular method of painting. The famous town of Oberammergau also shows how inextricably linked a handicraft is to the history of its town. In principle a stroll through the town famed the world over for it passion play is almost like walking through a museum. The traditional painting are still stand with us, where we have lots of technology like computer printing etc etc, I love colors and art. Let see the some pictures which I collect from Flickr.com. Pilatushaus - Oberammergau - Bavaria - Germany.
