Description

This four color woodblock print features a semi-abstract portrait of Lincoln. The mark making is aggressive and linear. Lincoln is on the right looking down to the left. He is rendered in black and brown. Lincoln's features are abstracted and his cheekbones are very prominent. His shoulders slope dramatically downward and he is wearing a black suit, bow tie and a white collared shirt. On the left edge, there is a yellow and brown sun. In the lower left corner, there is a red and brown landscape. The print is signed in the lower right and the edition 65/75 is printed in the lower left corner.
