Washington Times: “The many faces of Abraham Lincoln”

The Washington Times Sunday edition published an article written by Deborah Dietsch about the current special exhibit at the President Lincoln’s Cottage Robert H. Smith Visitor Education Center, “A Deep & Subtle Expression.”  

Dietsch writes:

“A small exhibition at the visitor center next to the newly restored Lincoln Cottage at the old Soldiers’ Home traces how some of these somber likenesses evolved in sculpture. “A Deep and Subtle Expression” reveals the poses and expressions passed down from artist to artist to establish the most famous images of the president, from the Lincoln Memorial to Mount Rushmore.

Organized according to the major artists who portrayed Lincoln, the 16 working models, sketches and photos are drawn from holdings at four house museums run by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
