Mormon art includes painting, sculpture, quilt work, photography, graphic art, and other mediums, and shares common attributes reflecting Latter-day Saint teachings and values. Numerous thematic components may be found in Mormon art. These range from being only inclusive of the Mormon faith to the simple underlying theme of spirituality that a Mormon artist attempts to render in a landscape or more general subject matter.
Most Mormon art is both Christian -themed and specific to the Mormon faith. Many of these LDS historical accounts depicted in art include, what Mormons believe to be, the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus in the midth century, scenes from the life of Joseph Smith, Jr.
LDS gospel principles, values, and the teachings of the church are also important art themes, especially to the latter half of the 20th century. These are often represented literally or allegorically as in landscape paintings representing spirituality, personal inspiration, God's love, and the wonders of God. Although the most common themes in Mormon art are historical and principle-based, specific to the LDS faith, the decade following the founding of the church on April 6, , and continuing on through the end of second half of the 19th century, revealed little of these themes.
Most artists who converted to the Mormon faith came from England and primarily exercised their talents by depicting the surrounding landscapes of the Mormon pioneer migration route. Their British art education concentrated on the traditional English Romantic style and theme rather than genre and historical themes.
One of the few exceptions that strays from this category of Romantic art is a painting by William Armitage — of London. One British artist associated with the English Romantic tradition was Frederick Piercy — , who converted to the church in His contribution to Mormon art history is his sketches and paintings of the western landscape as he migrated to Utah.
The Boston Museum of Fine Arts holds a number of his original works. It was not until the late s and after, particularly in the beginning of World War One, when Mormon artists began to depict historical and genre-based paintings to celebrate their faith in the church.
One of the first artists to begin this historical trend in Mormon art was Scandinavian-born artist C. Christensen — He had trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and used his talents to create one of his most famous series of paintings, Mormon Panorama , made up of 23 paintings depicting the church's history. Of these, Friberg is known for depictions of Book of Mormon stories and history of the United States. Due to the religion's rapid membership growth in the 20th century, Mormon art created during this period reflects the diverse cultural styles within the church and range from depicting the historical to the personal interpretation of the historical, and also contain a spiritual and faithful basis.
The LDS Church places great importance on the power and use of art. The magazines that are distributed monthly to members with a subscription are the Ensign , the Liahona , the New Era , and The Friend.
The purpose of Mormon art creation and circulation is to provide inspiration and encouragement to LDS members, and to instruct and remind them of the teaching and values of the church. A popular method of reaching out to the youth is through " Mormonads " posters with social or religious messages , which are available through the New Era the LDS Church's youth magazine , the church's website, and independent church bookstores.
Mormonads are available in poster-size and index-card sizes. Mormon art does not claim a particular style or aesthetic. Considered a young religion, Mormonism is not quite years old and has primarily expanded in the 20th century, when artistic and cultural freedom concurrently increased. Accordingly, Mormon art varies widely in style.
Richard G. Oman, expert on LDS art and curator of acquisitions for the LDS Church History Museum prior to , states in an excerpt on visual artists in the Encyclopedia of Mormonism that the church purposefully holds no limitations on LDS artistic style in order to promote stylistic diversity:. This has been especially conducive to variety in art as the Church has expanded into many different cultures, with differing artistic styles and traditions.
The LDS church recognizes the diverse demography and cultural differences within the church. Oman says that the church consequently embraces and promotes the various artistic attributes in order to "broaden [perspectives] so the Saints all over the world would be celebrated. One way the church showed their support for worldwide Mormon art was by establishing and hosting the International Art Competition in The Church History Museum continues to encourage artists worldwide to express their faith through their native traditions.
The juried competition and exhibition is held every three years, inviting LDS artists worldwide to create and submit works of art related to a gospel theme dedicated to the year in which it is held. A number of art pieces are then exhibited at the Church History Museum.
Prizes were awarded to 20, and 15 artworks have been purchased by the museum, adding to the church's already vast collection of artwork. The collection, dispersed throughout temples of the world and also held in the Church History Museum, includes a collection of Rembrandt etchings.
In , the museum exhibited 48 of Rembrandt's 70 biblical etchings. The museum had acquired 17, with the remaining having been loaned by the Museum of Art at Brigham Young University and by a private collector. The collection was exhibited from 14 May through 14 December , and online for a short period after the museum exhibition. Despite this variety of styles produced by LDS artists from around the globe, all LDS art is interrelated by means of a shared religious belief.
Oman also wrote of aesthetic uniformity:. Some of the aesthetic constants of LDS artists are the narrative tradition in painting, a reverence for nature, absence of nihilism , support of traditional societal values, respect for the human body, a strong sense of aesthetic structure, and rigorous craftsmanship The artists' shared religious faith and values have constantly infused that tradition with meaning.
In regards to Mormon art and its spiritual commonality, she wrote that this spirituality also encourages aesthetic diversity:.
