San Diego, Ca - United States

A very good portrait of A. Lincoln. Historically speaking, Mr. Lincoln, in his lifetime usually posed very formally for portraits, which meant, at the time, rather soberly or somberly, not smiling, but in real life, he was anything but that, most of the time. He had a profound sense of humor, (he once wrote a letter to an indecisive general saying: "My dear McClellan: If you don't want to use the Army, I should like to borrow it for a while.") He actually had very mobile facial features, smiled and laughed frequently (as he was often shown in the political cartoons of his day) but also had a problem with depression, particularly after the death of his son Tadd, and became more and more frequently pensive.

Hi Lewis A Ramsey Art, welcome to Presidents of the United States group! Also very interesting biography of Mr. Ramsey.

I am thrilled to see my grandpa finally getting the recognition he deserves. This painting of Lincoln with his son, Tad, hung in my parents' home until Mother moved in 2001. I believe the painting went to my Aunt Betty (L.A. Ramsey's daughter) at that time. I have 7 of his original paintings hanging throughout my home. I am so blessed to have these beautiful paintings.

Title

Father And Son

Artist

Lewis A Ramsey

Medium

Painting - Oil On Canvas Board

Description

Painted in 1930. A sculptor friend of Lewis A. Ramsey had several life masks of Abraham Lincoln and gave one to him. Lewis was always interested in Lincoln because Lewis’ father fought in the civil war and the family was from Illinois, where Lincoln was from.

L. A. Ramsey used the life mask of Lincoln to help make this painting, but took the setting from a photograph of Lincoln reading to his son, Tadd, while Lincoln was in the White House. Tadd died while Lincoln was President. The life mask had no beard, but the photograph did. So Mr. Ramsey painted him with the beard as Lincoln is most commonly seen. The choice of this tender scene with Lincoln’s son Tadd not only shows L. A. Ramsey’s admiration of Lincoln, but also his love of country and family.
