  • "Count Berthold Von Imhoff, a German immigrant to St. Walburg, Sask., painted exquisite religious murals and frescoes in churches across the province from 1913 to 1939. He transformed sparse walls and ceilings into works of art. Most of the time, he didn't charge the poor parishes for his expensive materials or labour. In this CBC Radio interview, Imhoff enthusiast Ray Penner discusses how Imhoff made the prairie churches of Saskatchewan his masterpiece."
