Loosely based on a photograph, this beardless portrait of Abraham Lincoln was first issued as a campaign print during the Republican convention in 1860. In the campaign piece, the words "Republican candidate for" were placed between the words reading "Abraham Lincoln" and "Sixteenth President of the United States." After the election the image was reused for this piece.
