On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

June 6

On this day (1926), artist and author Alfred Lambourne died. He was born in 1850. During the 1860s, Lambourne and his family emigrated to the United States and moved out west with the Mormon pioneers. As he traveled, he kept a sketchbook of all the scenery along the journey, and accompanied Brigham Young to Zion Canyon and made the first sketches of the area. He continued to paint and began to write later in his life, accumulating fourteen books. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Lambourne
