Description

This gray-toned print features a slight three-quarter profile standing portrait of Abraham Lincoln holding a book on top of a table in his PL hand. His PR arm hangs at his side, and he wears a black suit, black pants, white collared shirt, black vest, and black bowtie. To his PR in the middle ground is an elaborately carved chair with floral cushion. There is a table with tablecloth in the middle ground on his PL side. In the background PR side is a large column with base, and a black curtain hangs across most of the print. On the PL side, a tassel on the curtain is visible towards the top edge of the print. Underneath the image is the following text: "The people of these United States are the rightful masters of both Congresses and Courts, not to over-throw the Constitution, but to over-throw the men who pervert the Constitution". There are also two signatures and two locations typed in cursive script at the bottom of the print.
