[Springfield, Ill., 1860 Aug. 13]

1 photograph : ambrotype ; plate 5 3/4 x 4 1/2 in.

Notes:
Thought to be the last beardless portrait of Lincoln, this photo was "made for the portrait painter, John Henry Brown, noted for his miniatures in ivory. … ‘There are so many hard lines in his face,’ wrote Brown in his diary, ‘that it becomes a mask to the inner man. His true character only shines out when in an animated conversation, or when telling an amusing tale. … He is said to be a homely man; I do not think so.’" (Source: Ostendorf, p. 62)
