Abraham Lincoln: The Man (also called Standing Lincoln) is a larger-than-life size bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States. Completed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1887, it has been described as the most important sculpture of Lincoln from the 19th century. Abraham Lincoln II, Lincoln’s only grandson, was present at the unveiling. The artist also created the Seated Lincoln sculpture in Chicago’s Grant Park. The sculpture depicts a contemplative Lincoln rising from a chair, about to give a speech. It is set upon a pedestal and exedra designed by architect Stanford White.
