ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Taken February 5th, 1865. Gardner's Gallery, Washington D.C, United States
(Library of Congress)
"This photograph is one of most iconic portraits of the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Taken shortly before his assassination in April 1865, Lincoln wears his trademark Brooks Brothers suit, with other references coming from a photograph of the actual watch seen in the image (the hook is identical) and period references for the other props in the portrait."
– Jordan J. Lloyd
This historical photograph has been meticulously researched and rendered into colour from a black and white original by a skilled artisan, continuing a craft tradition that has existed since photography began.
"Abraham Lincoln, three-quarter length portrait, seated and holding his spectacles and a pencil."
