DEATH OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN.
The President died at 22 minutes past 7.”—Secretary Stanton to General Dix, April 15th, 1865.
Picture of Permanent National Interest.
PAINTED AND ENGRAVED BY A. H. RITCHIE.
A magnificent Engraving on Steel from Ritchie's original painting, representing the last monents of President Lincoln, is in active preparation, and will be published during the year 1866. It will be executed by Mr. Ritchie, who unites in an eminent degree the genius of the painter with that of the engraver, and who in both departments of art stands in the front rank of American artists, in proof of which statement we refer to his great pictures of " Washington and his Generals," " Fitting out Moses for the Fair," and "Mercy Knocking at the Wicket Gate."
The portraits included in the group composing tho last sad scene in the eventful life of our beloved President were taken from lifo sittings, and are remarkable for their Adelity to nature.
The life-like portraits of the eminent men-absorbed by the event about to take place - the touching pathos of the scene-the absence of every thing of a sensational or melo. dramatic character, and the apparent truthfulness with which tho gifted artist has delineated tho surroundings of the dying patriot, must commend this great work to every lover of the real in historic art. As a specimen of natural and harmonious grouping we are bold to say Chat this admirable painting has seldom been surpassed. The figures aro twenty-sis in number, And comprise those of the dying President; his son, Capt. Robt. Lincoln; Vice-President Johnson, Secretaries Stenton, Welles, McCulloch, and Usher; Postmaster-General Dennison, and Attor. ney-General Speed; Generals Halleck, Meigs, Augur, and Todd; Senator Sumner, Rov. Dr. Gurley; Speaker Colfax; John Hay, Private Secretary; Ex-Governor Farwell, Judge Carter, Judge Otto, Surgeon-General Barnes; Doctors Crane and Stone; Hon. Mr. Farnsworth, P. F. Andrews, and M. B. Field.
The size of the Engraving will be 21 inches by 32 inches, on large and heavy
SIZE OF THE PAINTING, 7 FEET BY 4+ FEET.
