    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Heroic-Size Bronze Bust by Joseph Kapfenberger.
    30" tall, 30" wide and 16" deep bust of Lincoln with his head tilted downward and his eyes closed, as if in meditation or prayer. The base reads: "With Malice Towards None, With Charity For All". Signed on the back side ©Jos. Kapfenberger. The sculptor (1882-1974) was of German descent and came to the U.S. in the mid-1930s, settling in New York. This work was created circa 1939. It weighs in at 164 pounds. Given the positioning, we suspect it was meant to be mounted on a large pedestal or plinth with viewers positioned below, gazing upwards. It has a beautiful patina and is in perfect condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
