This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jessie Atwood is perhaps best known for his rendering of Abraham Lincoln, executed in Springfield, IL in 1860 (see Illinois State Journal, 26 October 1860 and 1 November 1860).  Although the last known portrait of a clean-shaven Lincoln is the excellent rendering by G. P. A. Healy, the traveling-portraitist, Atwood - upon learning that Lincoln had grown a beard following the November election of 1860 - would quickly add whiskers onto his portrait of the new President.  (The Atwood portrait returned to Illinois at least once, showing in the "Exhibition of the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln: Painted from Life" at Young's Art Galleries, 17 North State Street, Chicago, from 10 to 16 February 1916.)
