The story of Berthold Von Imhoff, a man whose artistic talent earned acclaim in Europe, prestige in America, and honour by the Vatican, has been described as remarkable, awe-inspiring and, 75 years since the artist’s death, a Saskatchewan legacy well worth including in your travel plans.
Your visit includes:
• guided tour through the artist’s original gallery
• a look at the tools used by the artist and methods he employed
