Biography   George Story


George Henry Story was a painter of portraits, landscape and genre and curator and acting director of two major American museums, and an early portraitist of President Abraham Lincoln.

While in Washington for a period of time, Story had met the President, drawing him in pencil.  At a later date, Story again sketched Lincoln for three days in the Oval office, preparing to paint a commissioned portrait of the President.  He actually painted several portraits of Lincoln.  Story wrote about this experience: "After each sitting, I returned to my room and worked upon my picture with my sitter vividly in mind, almost as though he were in my actual presence."

Story was involved even further with Lincoln.    ...  Displaying 750 of 2143 characters.
