Solomon Carvalho

In 1852, Carvalho accompanied John C. Fremont on his fifth expedition from Missouri to Utah, a journey that required travel over several ranges in the Rocky Mountains.  Stranded by heavy snowstorms in 1853–54, many people died along the way to Utah.   Carvalho became seriously ill and left the Fremont party in Parowan, Utah and then traveled to Salt Lake City.  While in Salt Lake, he became a popular portrait artist with subjects including Brigham Young, authorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and other Utah notables.
