Biographical History

B.F. Larsen (1882-1970) was an artist and professor in Utah. He taught at Brigham Young University.

Bent Franklin Larsen was born in Monroe, Utah on May 10, 1882. Larsen enrolled at Snow Academy in 1899, graduating two years later. In 1906, Larsen began taking classes at BYU. His teachers were so impressed with him that he was hired as a faculty member the following year. On September 15, 1907, he married Geneva Day in the Manti Temple. They had five children -- Rex B., Eugene C., Celia G., Ronald F., and Grant A. Larsen. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree at BYU in 1912 and his Master of Arts degree at the University of Utah in 1922. He also studied at several renowned institutions under gifted art teachers. He died in 1970.
