- William Edgar Marshall, NYC (1837-1906). Known for his well-known portrait of Abraham Lincoln issued in 1866. A few years later of Grant. WE Marshall began his career mid 19th century as a watch engraver, then employed by the American Bank Note Company (vignette engraver/1858), He then opened a studio in NY where he produced the portrait of President A Lincoln that would hang in many schools across the USA (this portrait of President G Washington is considered in similar character).
- This engraving is often regarded as the finest done of George Washington, the Father of our Country. This is one of only a few ‘artist proofs’ signed by Marshall. The original gravure belongs to the Library of Congress.
