About First Freedom Art Company

In late 2022, First Freedom Art Company purchased the private art collection of Arnold Friberg, R.S.A. The collection includes over two hundred individual works of art, including the beloved The Prayer at Valley Forge, that currently hangs in Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C.

It is our privilege and honor to steward over two hundred individual pieces of art, many of which have never been seen in public. Our steadfast desire is for this gallery to virtually connect art lovers around the world with Friberg’s amazing storytelling talent.
