French Statue in Boston, Massachusetts

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston possesses an excellent small version of America's most famous Abraham Lincoln statue. You can see this replica of the Lincoln Memorial statue near the lower rotunda on the museum's first floor.

This bronze work with a dark brown patina was modeled by Daniel Chester French in 1918 and cast in 1987. The cast was made from his original plaster model which the Piccirilli Brothers used in constructing the Lincoln Memorial statue.
