African American – Mourning – Folk Art Watercolor of a Freed Slave Mourning the Death of Lincoln, c1865. 10 1/2 x 9 in, matted and handsomely framed to 16 x 15 in.

Period, original watercolor with a mourning border, of a freedman mourning at Lincoln’s Tomb, topped with an urn bearing a Lincoln image, below which is drawn “ABRAHAM LINCOLN OUR NATION HAS LOST ITS FATHER 1809-1865.”

A touching image, sensitively rendered, with a wonderful use of colors.

Excellent.
