Fractur Painting: Statement of principles
This framed fractur, believed to be the original artwork, was a wedding gift to Bob and Thelma Kauffman. It was created by Pennsylvania artist Roma Ruth in 1976. The quote is by Mennonite minister Benjamin Hershey from 1776.
“Blessed are the peace makers.” We have dedicated ourselves To serve all men in everything that can be helpful to the preservation of men’s lives, but we find no freedom in giving , or doing, or assisting in anything by which men’s lives are destroyed or hurt.
