Sacred Gifts: The Religious Art of Carl Bloch, Heinrich Hofmann, and Frans Schwartz was on display at the BYU Museum of Art from November 14, 2013 – May 10, 2014. Sacred Gifts explored and celebrated the many precious gifts represented by the outstanding portrayals of the Savior by Carl Bloch, Heinrich Hofmann, and Frans Schwartz.

Fortified with personal religious convictions, these three artists magnified their God-given gifts through rigorous training and study at some of Europe’s finest art academies. As a result, their paintings of the Savior blessed the lives of nineteenth-century churchgoers and continue to edify Christian believers today.

As part of the Sacred Gifts experience at the BYU Museum of Art, an app was included in the exhibition to provide additional information and insights about the artworks and artists. We have this space now for the content of the app to remain available online.
