Warner Sallman: The Master Painter

(Oct 17, 2014 - Aug 28, 2015)


A son of Finnish and Swedish immigrants, the Chicago-born commercial artist and painter Warner Sallman (1892 – 1968) has been cited by the New York Times as one of the most recognized artists of the 20th century. Sallman’s most popular and iconic image, the Head of Christ, has been reproduced over one billion times. A selection of Sallman’s works, both Christian and secular, will be displayed on the second floor from April 11-21 at the Nordic Heritage Museum.
