Arnold Friberg's Famous RCMP Paintings

Arnold Freiberg did a series of paintings for the Northwest Paper company calendars for the printing trade that was very popular.  The paper company wanted to prove the quality of their paper and its ability to hold gorgeous colors so the company chose the subject of the mounties in their iconic red jackets and the beautiful landscapes of the Canadian wilderness.  (Surely one of the great marketing moves of all time.)

"Maintaining the Right"
This painting was commissioned by the RCMP.

Just for fun, let's not forget Nelson Eddy, the best singing Mountie!
