Lincoln Artwork or Just Artwork?

July 5, 2021

One of our readers sent us a picture of a 2′ x 3′ bronze plaque he has in his possession that he thinks might depict Lincoln. It is signed “H 70” in the lower right-hand corner, but has no other identifying marks. The subject appears in profile on the left and again, as a supine figure in the tall grass on the right. The background consists of clouds, mountains and birds in flight. Although the portrait resembles artistic renderings of young Abe, we do not notice any other Lincoln iconography. If any of our readers can identify this, please let us know.
