Description

This print features an almost half-length portrait of President Abraham Lincoln after a painting done from life by Francis B. Carpenter in 1864. The portrait depicts Lincoln facing the viewer with his head turned slightly toward the viewer's right and wearing a black coat, vest, and bow tie with a white collared shirt. A printed inscription in the lower left corner of the image reads "From life by F. B. Carpenter, 1864." A facsimile Lincoln signature is printed in the bottom margin. A very small sketch of the Lincoln Springfield, Illinois, home is printed to the left in the bottom margin. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
