Utah artist Arnold Friberg, painter of historical scenes of Washington at Valley Forge for the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976, died Thursday at age 96.
He was known for a range of historical subjects, including images of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, marketing art for the film "Ten Commandments" and paintings for the Church of Latter-day Saints. (Correction: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Thanks, Les!)
More samples of his work can be seen at the blog of Greg Newbold, who had the chance to meet him.
