Historically, illustrations help convey the scriptural stories found in the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Artists’ creations vary in concept and content. From the familiar compositions of Arnold Friberg (1913–2010), who passed away 1 July 2010, that define Book of Mormon characters in oversized, muscular terms, to the gentle, even romantic impressions created by Minerva Teichert (1888–1976), or to the contemporary realism employed by Walter Rane, stories from the scripture come to life on canvas.
