Arnold Friberg R.I.P.

A  living legend has passed away today!
Arnold Friberg, undoubtely Utah's premier visual artist died Thursday, July 1, 2010, at the age of 96, in Salt Lake City.
Friberg was celebrated for his work — set pieces, costumes, backdrops, etc. — on Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments," his stylized renderings of Book of Mormon scenes, his painting of George Washington in "The Prayer at Valley Forge,"his series on Canadian Mounties for the Northwest Paper Company and the equestrian portraits of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles. (The only royal commissions ever granted to an American artist.)
Norman Rockwell once referred to Friberg as the “Phidias [Greek sculptor of the Parthenon] of religious art.”
