Noted for a portrait she sculpted of Abraham Lincoln as well as for other portrait busts including General Ulysses S. Grant, Sarah Ames was the first woman sculptor to settle in Rome in the mid-nineteenth century. 

Her marble bust of Abraham Lincoln was placed in the Senate wing of the U.S. Capitol Building, having been purchased by the government in 1868.  Carving it out of white marble, Ames seems to have intended this work as a realistic portraiture of the former Pre (showing 500 of 1108 characters).
