Lorus Pratt, the son of Orson Pratt, was one of five “art missionaries” who were sent to Europe in the early 1890s to study. The training they received honed their native talent and gave them the skill to paint the murals in the Salt Lake Temple. This 1916 painting is of a scene along the Jordan River west of Salt Lake City.
