Description

This gray-toned print depicts George Washington crowning Abraham Lincoln with a crown of leaves. Lincoln is in the foreground, and he wears a black suit, black vest, white collared shirt, and black bowtie. Washington is behind him, and he wears a black jacket and white shirt. His PL hand rests around Lincoln's PL shoulder, and his PR hand holds the crown above Lincoln's head. The rest of the background is clouds, and the sun shines in on from the upper PR corner. Paragraph on photograph/photographer on back of print.
