Description

This etching features a modernistic family tree of the Abraham Lincoln family. The roots of the tree state the names of Lincoln and Mary's parents and ancestors. Then first on the trunk are the portraits of Abraham and Mary, second in the leaves are their children; Willie, Robert, Eddie, and Tad with their portraits, and finally the smaller leaves are the Lincoln grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In the margin just below the image handwritten in pencil are the title, the number of the limited printing 4/85, and the artist's name and copyright date. Embossed in the lower right corner of the margin is the artist's triangular stamp. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
