"Abraham Lincoln"

The National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, PA commissioned this life-size standing portrait. The original canvas is 8 feet by 46 inches. The objective: make this great American president real. Old photos give us his grey image, but this painting is not a copy of any. It doesn't convey the flat lighting of the 19th century photographers. If you want to see how Mr. Lincoln might appear if he stood before you today, visit his room at the Civil War Museum and see for yourself.
