Maira Kalman meets Abe Lincoln at the Rosenbach


Maira Kalman went to the Rosenbach Museum and Library, and there began her love affair with Abraham Lincoln. Check out her wonderful response to Lincoln, drawings and all, in the New York Times.

The art is part of the Rosenbach’s 21st Century Abe project–bringing thoroughly modern Abe into the 21st century through the eyes of artists — and you, too, if you like. (The Kalman piece is on this site as well).
