Internationally renowned illustrator and portraitist of many noted dignitaries including the Queen of England, he was a master of his craft. Arnold Friberg passed away in 2010 at the age of 96, leaving a legacy of excellence in the illustration world. This exhibition is a celebration of his work, showcasing his varied portrayals of the heroic guardian of the North from the Tweed Museum's Potlatch collection of Canadian Royal Mounted Police Illustrations.
