This portrait of President Abraham Lincoln was painted in 1870 by an unknown artist of the American School. An original period oil painting, this portrait depicts President Lincoln in 3/4-seated pose. Lincoln is painted with his full beard, indicating a Civil War period of his life, near the end of his first term or the beginning of his second term as President of the United States.
This original oil painting of President Abraham Lincoln would be an outstanding piece in any Americana, Presidential, Civil War or Lincoln related collection.
The painting has been professionally relined and stretched over board for preservation and is beautifully framed using the finest archival materials and procedures. A short 2' x 2" apparent repair in the canvas has been conserved, now appearing as minor abrasion in the field just left of Lincoln's ear. Actual painting measures 25” x 30”, and is initialed by the artist (unknown) and dated 1870. Framed dimensions: 35 1/2" H x 30 1/2" W x 3" D.
