Arnold Friberg — best known to most of us as the LDS artist of “The Prayer at Valley Forge” or the originator of the musclebound he-man Nephites in the familiar series of Book of Mormon illustrations — is still going strong at the age of 94. You can see his online gallery here and his biography here.
What you won’t see anywhere but here at Keepapitchinin is his newly rediscovered early artwork.
Drum roll please …
Okay, okay — I didn’t promise you his greatest work, just an early piece!
