Abraham Lincoln

Hilary Robinson

Bangor, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

This man had the most unusual face, very asymetrical (even more so than most people) and therefore to an aspiring portrait painter like me, both fascinating and challenging. By his own description he had a dark complexion, grey eyes and strong black hair, described by others as looking as if it had never seen a brush or a comb. This is probably the best known face in history, since he was fortunate enough to have lived after the invention of photography. I hope that I have done him justice.
