Sacrifice of Isaac by Arnold Friberg


Graphite on Paper

12 x 17 in.

After working on the Book of Mormon paintings, Friberg explored the possibility of illustrating the Old and New Testaments. This is one of several unrealized subjects Friberg explored. In doing so, Friberg often looked to Old Masters who tackled the same subject; but, would employ imagery and emphasis on figures and themes that were unique to LDS doctrine.
