Newly acquired drawings of Abraham Lincoln by Illinois artist Charles Turzak are featured in this version of Looking At Lincoln, on view through Aug. 11.

The exhibition explores the life and times of Lincoln through art from the permanent collection. Turzak’s drawings were made in preparation for his seminal 1933 work, Abraham Lincoln – A Biography in Woodcuts and are paired with the woodcuts.

Also exhibited are other original prints by Turzak, John Steuart Curry, and N. C. Wyeth, and an oil painting by Paul T. Sargent. From the Illinois Folk Art Collection are 20th century paintings, quilts, carved wood dioramas, dolls, a log tavern model, and a whirligig, plus a c. 1840s quilt and a c. 1880s cane. Copies of the book An Abraham Lincoln Tribute: Featuring Woodcuts by Charles Turzak and original Turzak woodcuts are available for purchase in the Tarble Gift Shop. Closed Mondays.
