Grace is a 1918 photograph by Eric Enstrom. It depicts an elderly man, Charles Wilden, with hands folded, saying a prayer over a table with a simple meal. It was taken in Bovey, Minnesota. Originally black-and-white, the photo was colorized by hand by Enstrom's daughter, Rhoda Nyberg. It was this colorized version that attained widespread distribution.[1] In 2002, an act of the Minnesota State Legislature established it as the state photograph.[2] It is featured on road signs in Bovey.
