Description

This print done from a painting by artist Lloyd Ostendorf shows the artist's conception of an Abraham Lincoln family Christmas. A decorated Christmas tree stands on a round table with several wrapped gifts in front of it. Lincoln is shown holding Tad on his shoulders so he can place a candy cane on the tree. Willie stands behind Lincoln holding a candy cane in his left hand while he holds onto Lincoln's left suspender with his right hand.
