Abraham Lincoln (French 1912)
|Artist||Daniel Chester French|
|Owner||State of Nebraska|
Abraham Lincoln is a bronze statue of President Abraham Lincoln produced by Daniel Chester French between 1909 and its unveiling in 1912. It was commissioned by the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Association of Lincoln, Nebraska. The monument is located on the grounds of the Nebraska State Capitol, placed in an architectural setting created by French's longtime collaborator Henry Bacon.
The statue was cast in bronze by Jno. Williams, Inc. of New York.
French was to use much of the research, consisting largely of studying Mathew Brady's photographs of Lincoln and obtaining a copy of Leonard Volk's plaster life cast of the president, for the creation of the Lincoln statue (1920) located in the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
