Minerva Teichert, Christ in a Red Robe
The works of western American artist, Minerva Teichert (1888-1976), have received increasingly popular and critical acclaim in recent years. From her modest home in Wyoming, Teichert produced a prolific number of paintings that celebrate the saga of western settlement and the heritage of her Mormon faith. Today, Teichert is beloved among the LDS community as a woman who successfully combined faith and family and left an extraordinary legacy of artistic production. The well known Christ in a Red Robe illustrates the prophecy that the Savior’s garment will be red when he comes again in the Millennium. With the righteous to his right and the damned souls at his left, Christ reaches out in meek, loving kindness to all those who recognize him.
