Gutzon Borglum: Mount Rushmore's Abraham Lincoln
About the Artwork
Abraham Lincoln's reputation as one of our country's greatest presidents was carved in stone long before his face was immortalized in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Playing with scale and symbolism, this framed photograph shows a solitary repairman dwarfed by the massive granite sculpture and the history it represents in "Gutzon Borglum: Mount Rushmore Repair 1962. The Mount Rushmore National Memorial depicts four American presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt. This specific Abe Lincoln artwork is just as dramatic in person as it is on screen and brings a wonderful addition of monochromatic hues to your space.
