(From Daniel Chester French by Michael Richman). This is the five foot plaster model of the Lincoln that the brothers used in the early stages of the carving. French later replaced it with a seven foot model. A separate full- sized plaster model of the head was also provided by the sculptor. (The "backup" copy of that plaster head is in the collection of The New-York Historical Society)
