[Abraham Lincoln]. One of a group of ten Lincoln portrait prints, without titles, imprints, etc. Stern Collection, Broadside v. 4, no. 83b. Rare Book and Special Collections Division.

A generic image containing typical nineteenth-century popular iconography of mourning and religious sentiment. The addition of the U.S. Capitol in the background suggests that this stock image, on which the name of the person being memorialized would have been printed, might have been used for other political personages.
