This one-of-a-kind unframed original pencil and ink drawing was created by New Orleans artist Emilie Rhys over the course of several days starting on June 15, 2018, at a private residence on Garcia Street in Santa Fe, NM.

The source for the drawing is a 1909 photograph of the sculptor Adolph Alexander Weinman at his studio, showing him and his assistants at work on various statues, including several versions of his seated portrait of Abraham Lincoln.

Though the stone portrayal bears a resemblance to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., it is different and was created for the Lincoln Memorial in Hogdenville, Kentucky and was installed in 1909, to commemorate the centenary of Lincoln's birth.

Mr. Weinman is seen at center in the composition, up on a ladder wearing a white shirt, dark vest and light trousers.
