Abraham Lincoln Life Mask, Leonard Wells Volk
Shortly before winning the Republican nomination for President, Lincoln paid several visits to artist Leonard Wells Volk. Though he found the process of letting wet plaster dry on his face followed by a skin-stretching removal process "anything but agreeable," Lincoln endured it with good humor. Upon seeing the finished product, he declared it, "the animal himself."
