Rhoda Nyberg of Bovey, Minn., hand-painted the world-famous photograph of a peddler in prayer. Nyberg’s father, Eric Enstrom, took the photo, “Grace,” in Bovey in 1918. The photo became Minnesota’s official state photo in 2002.
The Duluth News Tribune profiles the painter.
A family relative, who spent time with Nyberg, shares a lot more information about the photo.
You can buy a copy of the photo at the Enstrom family’s website.
