The word “Bauernmalerei” means “peasant painting” (literally “farmer painting”) in German. Although this folk art evolved throughout three centuries and included many different regional styles, today it is all referred to as Bauernmalerei. In the USA it is often called Bavarian Folk Art because Bavaria is the largest area in Germany that promotes this art.
