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.

Very well done very nice painting will be looking for more of your art JIM
