I served a mission in Denmark. Our family later lived in Denmark for three
years. Our favorite activity for the family and when we had visitors was to see
the Karl Bloch paintings. There is no way words can describe his excellence in
talent to highlight the messages given in each painting. They must be felt and
pondered. He truly used the message of "light" to bring out the main
theme of his paintings. They must be "seen" AND felt. Blessings to my
alma mater in presenting these marvelous paintings.
Religious art on display at any public institution of higher learning would be
vigorously protested by anti-Christian activists. Thank goodness for BYU!
Our visit a few years ago to Denmark was highlighted by Bloch's works,
it'll be great to see them over here now too! BYU shows continued
commitment to furthering our exposure to great works of art, thanks to the LDS
Church for making this possible for us!
