President Lincoln and His Family
The Lincolns never had a family photograph taken. After Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, artist Francis Carpenter created this composite of the family using photographs of the individuals as models. Willie Lincoln, who died in 1862, is shown in the portrait on the wall. The rest of the family is focused on the book in Lincoln’s lap. This family image quickly became one of the most popular Lincoln pictures.
