Project Main Details
Our take on the narrator is that he be textured with passion, aged with a tone of authority and experience, and convey the life long accomplishments of Mr. Friberg. He worked with De Mille, he painted a portrait of Queen Elizabeth. So the voice needs to feel a bit of that royalty, and hollywood golden age.

The Prayer at Valley Forge
******* had great respect for Washington. At age 12 he drew a picture of the general on his horse. Decades later, at the height of his creative powers and with America’s bicentennial approaching, Friberg turned his attention to a new subject and simultaneously created a gift for the nation.
Friberg wanted this painting to be as authentic as possible. So he travelled to Valley Forge during the winter. He once said... “To prepare for this painting, to insure accuracy in trees and landscape, I made a pilgrimage to Valley Forge, in the dead of winter. It was deserted, the wind moaning through the great trees, silent, lonely, cold. It was a cold that chilled to the bone, a cold that froze my fingers until I could no longer sketch nor even snap my camera.”
“The Prayer at Valley Forge” shows our first President in one of his darkest hours. Leading an impoverished and battle-worn army who are ill equipped for the brutal winter cold, Washington falls to his knees to pray for Divine help.
This particular painting was conceived not only to honor Washington, but to symbolize the divine source of human liberty. “It is my fervent hope and prayer that coming through this picture will once again whisper the spirit of Valley Forge, of suffering, devotion, and pain, of yearning for liberty, and of the hand of God in the affairs of men.”
The Inspired Brush
Friberg often described himself as a storyteller. "That's all I've ever wanted to do, that's why I went into illustrating,” he once said. "Art to me is a service, to bring enrichment to people's lives. That's why I want my art to be perfectly understood. One of the things I work for is clarity."
Three years ago, Arnold Friberg died in Salt Lake City, at the age of 96. He was given more than a warm send-off; his funeral was befitting a prince. An American buried in an honorary RCMP uniform, a born Lutheran memorialized in the Mormon Assembly Hall, an American artist who signed ‘Arnold Friberg, RSA,’ Friberg’s casket was carried by a horse drawn carriage up to the City Cemetery, followed by a full cortege.
The artwork found in this final section includes the types of projects that helped Friberg developed his talent over the course of his career. They don’t really fit in any of the other categories, thus forming their own unique place. These works include self-portraits, family portraits, and his favorite time of year, Christmas.
