Description

This gray-toned print depicts a portrait of Abraham Lincoln's face. We can see the beginnings of his suit jacket, white collared shirt, and black bowtie, but the focus is his face. His body faces towards the PL in a slight three-quarter profile, but his gaze is centered. The portrait shows evidence of many pencil-like strokes so that it looks like a quick sketch. The marking at the beginning of his suit jacket and the shadows above his shoulders are especially loose and sketchy. The artist's signature is at the bottom PR edge of the image.
