Hesler Prints Now Available

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 statesman 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.

The Society offers 16” x 20” Hesler Lincoln Portraits, double  matted and beautifully framed, and 32”x42”, double matted and beautifully framed.

Matted Hesler prints are also available at lesser prices. For more information call 217-525-2781 today.
