Measuring 24 1/8 x30 ¾ inches on its original stretcher, this oil on canvas beardless Lincoln portrait is signed (A. Aloisi) and offers good evidence of age and originality while remaining in pleasing condition save an easily restorable small tear just above the ear and some natural age thin spots that are likewise easily restorable. (All easily seen in our illustrations, we have chosen to leave the painting as found to preserve originality.) The painting is taken from a photograph by Alexander Heslet during a June 3,1860 sitting while Lincoln was campaigning for the presidency. A popular image of the Rail Splitter in the early campaign, Heslet’s Lincoln and images taken from his work, became well known in the period and are especially sought by todays collectors. Lincoln’s law partner, William Herndon, commented that the image was so essentially Lincolnian; no other artist has ever caught it. Nicely done yet offering a crudeness not seen in the work of a trained artist, the special charm of this old piece will place it in the folk art category to most. An exceptional piece of Americana, this early presidential campaign rendering from the Springfield, Illinois photographer’s a beardless Abraham Lincoln photograph will show off well. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
