Alexander Hesler's Abraham Lincoln Portrait-Profile View, 16" x 20", Matted Only
Alexander Hesler's Abraham Lincoln Portrait-Profile View, 16

Alexander Hesler’s companion portraits of presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln, taken in Springfield on June 3, 1860, are stunning photographs. Exposed on 8” x 10” light-sensitive glass plates, the images are among the most  eloquent and revealing of Illinois’ greatest states-man before he left Springfield for Washington. 

The Illinois State Historical Society acquired the glass plate positives (the original negatives are in the Smithsonian,  damaged beyond repair) and has commissioned archive-quality prints of the Hesler portraits.
