Description

This imperial-sized print features a head and shoulders portrait of President Abraham Lincoln done from a photograph taken of him on February 9, 1864, in Washington, D. C. Facing slightly toward the viewer's right, Lincoln wears a dark suit jacket and vest, along with a white collared button-down shirt and black bow tie. There is a shadow above each of Lincoln's shoulders that extends up to his neck and his right ear. The words "ABRAHAM LINCOLN" faintly appear in the bottom left corner of the image.
