When a teenage Joseph Smith entered the woods behind his family farm to pray over his soul and inquire which church he should join, the vision that burst forth from heaven changed his life and laid the foundation for the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Although Joseph Smith’s First Vision is among the most oft-depicted scenes of the Restoration by artists, this First Vision painting is unique in that it is a harmony of the nine major historical accounts of the First Vision. It attempts to bring together a cohesive picture, including some aspects not typically depicted in other First Vision imagery, such as the Father and Son not appearing simultaneously, the “pillar of flame,” the “many angels” mentioned in the 1835 account, and Satan being cast out in the corner.
