About this Item

Photograph by John Goldin of Littlefield's painting, on printed mount. Image 8 1/2 x 13 3/4 in.; mounted to 13 x 17 in. A published photograph of Littlefield's hyper-realistic Lincoln death-bed painting, each figure meticulously rendered from photographs. Littlefield studied law under Lincoln in 1858, stumped for him in his Presidential bid, and was rewarded with a position in the Treasury Department. After Lincoln's death, Littlefield invented this tableau of twenty-five people ranged around the death-bed, including Vice-President Johnson, Surgeon Charles Leale, and Mrs. Lincoln."The artist used photographs as models for the twenty-five people gathered in the death room, but his profile of the dying Lincoln shows a first-hand acquaintance" (Ostendorf, LINCOLN'S PHOTOGRAPHS, p. 279). Photograph by John Goldin of Littlefield's painting, on printed mount. Image 8 1/2 x 13 3/4 in.; mounted to 13 x 17 in. Bookseller Inventory # 238011
