    Abraham Lincoln Chromolithograph Portrait by E. C. Middleton. This chromolithograph of Abraham Lincoln is dated both 1863 and 1864 on the reverse. Chromolithography was the first process for making multi-colored prints and was perfected by the E. C. Middleton Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, the manufacturer of this piece.

    Made with fine oils, these prints are laid down on a canvas board and look like actual oil paintings. In the chromolithographic process the vibrant colors are painted onto stone slabs by hand and the print is laid onto the board. This is a very nice example of the Lincoln portrait and still has its original frame of wood with gold-painted gesso with a floral motif and its original glass. There is one slight crack on the frame at the left and a chip at the bottom right which has been repaired.

    Measuring 18¾" x 22", this is an attractive work of art by the master lithographer.
