This color portrait features the artist's idea of how President Abraham Lincoln would look with a large smile. He is staring directly at the viewer. Lincoln is shown wearing a black frock coat, vest, and bow tie. The background of the painting is black with highlighting around Lincoln's head and body. The painting was signed and dated by the artist in the lower left corner. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
