Description
A fascinating examination of the relationship between Lincoln's image, the printmakers' craft, and the political culture that helped shape them both, The Lincoln Image documents how print- makers both chronicled and influenced Lincoln's transfiguration into an American icon.

Focusing on prints produced in Lincoln's lifetime and in the iconographically important months immediately following his death, this lavishly illustrated volume pairs original photographs and paintings with the prints made from them. That juxtaposition reveals how printmakers reworked the original images to refine Lincoln's appearance, substituting his image for those of earlier politicians or adding a beard to images of him that originally appeared clean-shaven. The Lincoln Image also includes wartime cartoons, Lincoln family portraits (most of which appeared after the assassination), and renderings of the fateful moment of the shooting at Ford's Theatre. In addition to discussing the prints themselves, prominent Lincoln scholars Harold Holzer, Gabor S. Boritt, and Mark E. Neely Jr. examine the political environment of the nineteenth century that sustained a market for political prints.
