The six-foot-high plaster working model of the celebrated seated Lincoln statue by American sculptor Daniel Chester French (1850-1931), designed for the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall, will be on view in honor of President Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday. The plaster sculpture will be joined by the wood model of the Lincoln Memorial that renowned American architect Henry Bacon (1866-1924) used to bolster his entry in the design competition for the memorial. The works will be accompanied by life-size photo banners of the final Lincoln sculpture and a watercolor of the East Elevation of the Lincoln Memorial by Jules Guerin (who executed the murals in the Memorial), as well as informative, illustrated text panels.
