Abraham Lincoln, 1865
Digital Color Reconstruction by Jordan J. Lloyd, 2017
---
This pain-stakingly colorized photograph is based on Mathew Gardner‘s original photograph, taken in February 1865.

Caption reads, “[Abraham Lincoln, three-quarter length portrait, seated and holding his spectacles and a pencil]”

This photograph is one of most iconic portraits of the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Taken shortly before his assassination in April 1865, Lincoln wears his trademark Brooks Brothers suit, with other references coming from a photograph of the actual watch seen in the image (the hook is identical) and period references for the other props in the portrait.
