Arnold Friberg Dies at Age 96
An amazing artist passed away yesterday. His paintings of scenes from the Book of Mormon were a part of my life since before I can even remember. According to my History of Illustration course at BYU, not only was he an amazing painter, he was also a really good person. A lot of really fantastic painters seem to have totally unbalanced home lives, but Friberg was a saint (ha ha, get it?) Anyhow, here's a few of his works. Great stuff.
