      A charmingly inept adaptation of Alexander Gardner's photograph of Lincoln with his son Tad. This print inspired Holzer's first article on Lincoln iconography in 1974. "Almost comically malproportioned . . . Lincoln's legs are shortened and his torso enlarged, as if it had been inflated with air"--Lincoln Image, page 184.
