Harry's Paintings for the Mormons
In the 1960's and 1970's Harry Anderson did a series of paintings for the LDS Church....
Harry did his first painting for them in the early 1960's so it could be displayed at the 1964-1965 World's Fair in New York in the Mormon Pavilion...
...but this is the only picture I've been able to locate of the inside of the Pavilion, and Harry's painting is not visable...

Harry's artist friend Tom Lovell
Harry Anderson did about 20 paintings for the Mormons, but only biblical Bible scenes -- his friend Tom Lovell accepted the commissions for the paintings that dealt with Mormon doctrine....
John W. Scott
For many years I thought that Tom Lovell also did this mural painting of "The Last Judgment," but I've just heard that this 1974 painting was done by another of Harry's artist friends, John Scott!
...and John Scott painted Harry Anderson into the painting!
