Abraham Lincoln in American Art

A Road Scholar Program by Mark Pohlad

This presentation traces the image of Abraham Lincoln in the history of American art. It illustrates how and why artists have used images of the great man. From Mathew Brady’s photographs, to statues by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, to paintings by contemporary artists such as Ed Paschke, the sixteenth President has been the subject of many important American works of art. Besides description and analysis of these pieces, this lively multimedia presentation will also involve history, art, media, and the biography of Abraham Lincoln.
