Prairie Churches - Count Berthold von Imhoff Part 2
A Roman Catholic, Imhoff painted for churches of many denominations, often donating his work and making each unique.
This segment provides a fascinating closer look at the aristocratic artist who devoted his life to painting the churches of fellow immigrants throughout Saskatchewan and the Dakotas. The biography of the idealistic artist is adorned with images from 18 churches where many of his masterpieces survive intact today.
