lot of two, including a vignetted albumen portrait of Lincoln by Henry F. Warren, taken two days after the second inaugural on the south balcony of the White House, Monday, March 6, 1865, [Ostendorf, O-112], 5" x 6" (site); with Lincoln's clipped signature, dated Feb. 18, 1865; both matted and framed, 9" x 15".
Henry Warren took three pictures of Lincoln on March 6, 1865, two seated and one standing. The standing pose is lost, but the vignetted portrait included here was widely distributed by Warren. Apparently, Tad brought his father out on the balcony for the sitting, so Lincoln may have been posing just to please his son [Ostendorf, 214].
