Arthur Szyk lithograph of Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address

Object | Accession Number: 2002.113.1

Print of an Arthur Szyk painting and illumination of the closing words of Abraham Lincoln's second inaugural address of 1865, with a portrait of Lincoln, flags of Allied nations of World War II, and US military symbols. Szyk, a Jewish emigre artist, originally from Lodz, Poland, left London for the United States in 1940. After the German invasion of Poland in September 1939, his work was focused on anti-Nazi political cartoons. In the US, Szyk became a leading anti-Fascist editorial caricaturist, creating works that brought attention to the mass murder of Europe’s Jews by Nazi Germany.
