1995 Release. Available from the publisher. "I have painted my share of Apaches chasing the Butterfield stagecoach, for violent action was a part of Western history. But as the years roll away, I find I would rather picture the peace, the distance and the mysterious beauty of the West. I have never lost my boyhood sense of wonder about the deep northern forest and the mystical Sonoran desert. It is my real and most transcendent place of worship..my deepest reverence is felt as I witness the evidence of the hand of the Creator in all-things." Said Friberg
1990 Release. Available from the publisher. From first-hand observation of Indian camp life, Friberg here has recorded many richly authentic details of the tepees - stakes, lacing, pins, medicine bundles, painted designs; and the orderly interlocking of lodge poles over the smoke holes. Also stretched hides and meat drying racks, all giving a complete picture of a people at home with nature. The small girl in the tepee doorway looks with admiration upon the macho brave on his strong horse.
Friberg Fine Art, Inc. proudly announces the new limited edition release of Into New Country by Arnold Friberg! Quoting from Mr Friberg, "More and more as the years roll away, I want to leave to the world only such beauty as God will enable me to express. I want to paint the most noble people, animals, mountain streams, trees and rocks, all evidence of the Creator's handiwork. Arnold captures the realism and brings to life those historic days of the Western Native American Indians.
Indian men wanted their women to present a fine appearance on horseback. As a result, women's horse gear was much more elaborate and decorated than the men's. Here Friberg has pictured a splendid procession of a tribe on the move, with richly beaded saddles, chest bands, and cruppers on horses drawing burdens by means of lodge poles laced into a "travois," ridden by squaws carrying papooses on their backs in highly decorated cradleboards.
When the Land Was His depicts a scene from America's proud Indian heritage. Mr. Friberg had a great respect for the Native American culture and a reverence for the land and people of the early west, which is apparent in his work
