Joseph Harry Anderson’s (1906–1996) artwork is incredibly well-known within the LDS Church. His paintings can be found in manuals, books, websites, and in the homes of LDS members and church buildings all over the world. But did you know that Anderson was never a member of the Church and was a proud Seventh-day Adventist? Nevertheless, his paintings are still marvelous.
Harry Anderson was first hired to create paintings for the Church’s pavilion at the World’s Fair in 1963. After that, he accepted many more commissions to create paintings for the Church, including the extremely famous painting The Second Coming. His work for the Church includes nearly 30 paintings that have become iconic Latter-day Saint images.
