Abraham Lincoln

By after a life portrait by Charles Alfred Barry Joseph E. Baker

Abstract

Portrait of Abraham Lincoln."A Boston newspaper predicted that this stylized print would "have a large sale"... Very few of the prints were published, however, possibly because the lithographic stone broke early on in the printing process... Interestingly, the image may have achieved its widest circulation in a number of pirated editions issued by rival printmakers, both in separate sheets and for at least one picture newspaper." A second copy in the collection is one of the "pirated" prints
