Minerva Teichert may be one of the most widely reproduced yet least-know artists in the Church. She was a skilled and sophisticated painter. Johnson provides a life sketch as well as an analysis of her professional career. She also explains some aspects of Teichert's style. Teichert did many paintings for the Church, including the 'World Room' in the Manti Temple. 'The true power of Minerva's strong faith is revealed in the creative conceptualization of more than forty scenes from the sacred record of the New World. Her imaginative Book of Mormon paintings offer a visual alternative to a generation of Latter-day Saints brought up on Arnold Friberg's powerful bus masculine imagery of the Book of Mormon. . . . It is here that Teichert must surely join the ranks of the most creative Latter-day Saint artists--one who sought to express the unique vitality of her theology in an absolutely original mode.'
