Sentinel of Freedom, artist Adrian Brewers most famous painting, was completed in 1941. Commissioned by a Little Rock (Pulaski County) insurance executive, the painting was unveiled at a special ceremony in Washington DC. The popularity of the painting resulted in the printing and distribution of millions of prints. Most every school, church, and government building displayed Brewers work. Today, the original painting is owned by the U.S. Naval Academy, where it is displayed in the schools library.
