Celery Fields; Dordogne, France by Alma Brockerman "A.B." Wright


A.B. Wright exhibited his artwork in early-century Paris salons. Wright studied at Latter-day Saints College, as well as at the University of Utah, where his instructors were J. T. Harwood and Herman Haag. He continued his art education in Paris at the Académie Julian, and at the Académie Colorissi, and became known for his landscapes and portraits. Once back in Utah, Wright was a professor of art at the LDS University in Salt Lake City, and in the 1920s he painted murals for the temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Arizona, Canada, and Hawaii.
