INTRODUCTION. 
By Charles Henry Hart. 

HIS catalogue is the first attempt to make 
a systematic record of the engraved por- 
traits of Abraham Lincoln, sixteenth 
President of the United States; and 
never before, as far as can be ascertained, has a 
special exhibition of them been undertaken. The 
catalogue and exhibition therefore are not only 
interesting, but they are important ; for while com- 
pleteness is not claimed for either, they will un- 
doubtedly serve to stimulate interest in the subject 
and lead to the unearthing of portraits of Lincoln 
hitherto unknown. Such is universally the result 
of a first essay in any new field of investigation, 
which, at best, can only be regarded as a tentative 
effort, and therefore is entitled to the consideration 
due to all pioneer work, commendation for what has

been done and forbearance for that which uncon- 
sciously has been left undone. 

Mr. Lincoln came to the forefront comparatively 
so late in life, when the art of engraving had 
fallen into disuse, that but little variety will be found 
in the types of the portraits shown, and but few of 
them possess any artistic merit. Yet their value as 
human documents is unmistakable, and this will in- 
crease as time rolls on ; for Abraham Lincoln is the 
typical American in history, and consequently he is 
the greatest of Americans. Washington, who made 
Lincoln possible, was historically a Briton, so that 
when we place the saviour of his country upon the 
lofty pedestal we do, we in no wise disparage or 
detract from the eminence of him who was " first in 
war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his 
countrymen," — the father of his country. 

Abraham Lincoln was born in Hardin, now Larue 
county, Kentucky, near Nolin creek, about a couple 
of miles from Hodgensville, the present county 
seat of Larue county, on the 12th day of February, 
1809. His parents were poor and illiterate, and the 
education he received was meagre, his early life 
being one of continued hardships. It was not long, 
however, before Lincoln showed that he was sui 
generis. At the age of twenty-four he secured the 
office of country postmaster, and the next year en- 
tered the Illinois legislature, where he sat through 
four sessions. He read law and was admitted to 



INTRODUCTION. 



the bar, and at thirty-seven was sent to Congress, 
where he served for one term. Consequently he 
had acquired some local reputation, but his name 
was unknown to the country at large, until he en- 
tered the field of debate with Stephen A. Douglas, 
in the summer of 1858, both being candidates for a 
seat in the United States Senate. This led the way 
to his famous speech at the Cooper Institute, New 
York, on February 27, i860, which Horace Greeley 
stamped as the best political speech to which he 
ever listened, defining a political speech to be, " an 
effort to convince the largest possible number that 
they ought to be on the speaker's side, not on the 
other." Therefore when, in May of i860, Abraham 
Lincoln was nominated for the Presidency, the poli- 
ticians of the country knew, if the people did not, 
something of what manner of man he was. His 
subsequent election, career, and foul murder are 
matter of history too familiar to need repeating, but 
this brief outline of the life of the man whose por- 
traiture is exhibited at this time will explain why 
his portraits cover such a short period of his life. 

At the time of his nomination for the Presidency, 
Mr. Lincoln gave this description of himself : " I 
am in height six feet four inches nearly ; lean in 
flesh, weighing on an average 180 pounds; dark 
complexion, with coarse black hair and gray eyes." 
To this description his secretary, Mr. Nicolay, adds 
these details of the peculiarities of Lincoln's form 



6 INTRODUCTION. 

and features : " Large head with high crown of 
skull; thick, bushy hair; large and deep eye cav- 
erns; heavy eyebrows; a large nose; large ears; 
large mouth; very high and prominent cheek 
bones ; cheeks thin and sunken ; strongly developed 
jaw bones; chin slightly upturned; a thin but 
sinewy neck, rather long ; long arms ; large hands ; 
chest thin and narrow as compared with great 
height ; legs of more than proportionate length, and 
large feet." 

While these structural particulars are of value 
and have been utilized by Mr. St. Gaudens in the 
most masterly statue yet erected in America, alone 
they would give no idea of how Abraham Lincoln 
appeared, in the flesh, to those who knew him. And 
indeed no word-painting can convey to the mind 
of another an adequate conception of the appear- 
ance of any person, so much depends upon the 
spirit and expression, which latter, in persons of 
character, is ever changing. With Mr. Lincoln 
this was notably the case, so that it was the despair 
of painters and of photographers to catch a likeness, 
and the best that can be done is to make a com- 
posite, in the mind, from all the pictures that we 
have of him and all the characteristics that we know 
of him. 

Mr. Lincoln has been called by one of his best 
friends " an ugly, awkward giant." But no man 
with the soulful expression that flowed from his 



INTRODUCTION. 



eyes could be ugly, and that evanescent, subtle 
quality which was supreme in him, is the most diffi- 
cult to catch and fix. 

If to-day any one wants to behold Abraham 
Lincoln, as he was when he lived and moved and 
had his being, at his full stature and with his noble 
soul astir, journey to Chicago and kneel before the 
bronze statue by Augustus St. Gaudens. It is the 
man himself, with all his humility and nobiHty, with 
all his gentleness and strength ; " With maUce 
toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in 
the right as God gives us to see the right." It is 
not Abraham Lincoln the liberator of slaves, but 
Abraham Lincoln the Saviour of the Union, — he 
who said, " My paramount object in this struggle is 
to save the Union, and is not either to save or to 
destroy slavery." And these words are inscribed 
at the base of St. Gaudens's statue, showing the lofty 
and true historic conception of the man possessed 
by this great sculptor. 

The earliest portrait of Lincoln painted from life 
was by Thomas Hicks, who was sent for the pur- 
pose from New York to Springfield soon after the 
nomination. It is a full bust, nearly in profile, and 
portrays Lincoln without any beard, an adornment 
or disfigurement he never wore until after his elec- 
tion to the Presidency. Life-portraits of him were 
also painted by William Morris Hunt, E. D. Mar- 
chant, G. P. A. Healy, A. J. Conant, Frank B. 



INTRODUCTION. 



Carpenter, and Matthew Wilson; a miniature on 
ivory was painted by J. Henry Brown, and is now 
in the possession of Hon. Robert T. Lincoln; 
and Leonard W. Volk, of Chicago, and Thomas D. 
Jones, of Columbus, each made busts of him from 
life. Volk also made, as likewise did Clark Mills, 
a mask from the Hving face ; but life masks such as 
these are of little or no value as portraits. Indeed so 
true is this, that when Mr. St. Gaudens saw the cast 
from Clark Mills's mask of Lincoln, he insisted 
that it must be a death mask, so lacking is it in 
vitality. 

The best prints of Lincoln, in an artistic sense, 
are the etchings by Rajon and Johnson, the large 
woodcut by Kruell, and the line-engravings by Mar- 
shall and Gugler. That by Gugler is claimed to be 
the largest portrait ever engraved on steel. It pur- 
ports to be from a painting by J. H. Littlefield, a 
former student at law in Mr. Lincoln's office ; but 
the portrait is in fact from a Brady photograph, with 
a slight change in the arrangement of the hair. 
While prints, including those on steel, wood, and 
stone, are the principal objects shown in the present 
exhibition, perhaps the only satisfactory study of the 
portraiture of Abraham Lincoln can be made from 
photographs, of which there are many, taken within 
the last five years of his life. 

Interest in everything pertaining to Lincoln is on 
the steady increase, and many valuable collections 



INTRODUCTION. 



have been formed of his portraits, of the hterature 
pertaining to him, and of personal memorials. 

The Lincoln cult is only in its infancy. It has had 
but a single generation in which to grow ; but as the 
perspective of time brings into grander relief the 
noble proportions of its subject, homage and ad- 
miration for him will be bounded only by the civil- 
ized world. 




The Committee of Arrangements desires to 
thank Major W. H. Lambert and Mr. W. C. 
Crane, who are not members of the Groher Club, 
for their valuable contributions, without which 
the exhibition could not have been completed. 



ENGRAVINGS, 



The inscriptions are always at the bottom, unless other- 
wise stated. 

"Facsimile signature" is abbreviated " Fac. sig." 

The sizes are in inches, the width being given first. 
Whenever possible, the size of the full plate is given, as well 
as that of the engraved part. 

In the case of vignette-portraits, the greatest width and 
height of the engraved part of the plate are noted. 

"L. P." before the size means that only Lincoln's portrait 
has been measured, and not the remainder of the engraving.
