DEATH OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN.
The President died at 22 minutes past 7."-Secretary Stanton to General Dis, April 15th, 1865.
Picture of Permanent National Interest.
PAINTED AND ENGRAVED BY A. II. RITCHIE.
A magnificent Engraving on Steel from Ritchie's original painting, representing the last moments of President Lincoln, is in active preparation, and will be published during the year 1866. It will be esecuted by Mr. Ritchie, who unites in an eminent degreo the genius of the painter with that of tbe engraver, and who in bo th departments of art stands in the front rank of American artists, in proof of which statement we refer to his great pictures of " Washington and bis Generals," "Fitting out Moses for the Fair," and "Mercy Knucking at the Wicket Gatc."
The portraits included in the group composing tbo last sad scene in the eventful life of our beloved President were taken from life sittings, and are remarkable for tbeir fidelity to noture.
The life-like portraits of the eminent med-absorbed by the event about to take place --the touching pathos of the scene-the absence of every thiug of a sensational or mclo. dramatic character, and the apparent truthfulness with which the gifted artist bas delineated thn surroundings of the dying patriot, must commend this great work to every lover of the real in historic art. As a specimen of natural and barmonious grouping we are bold to say that this admirable painting has seldom been surpassed. The figures aro twenty-six in number, and comprise those of the dying President; bis, son, Capt. Robt. Lincoln; Vice-President Johnson, Secretaries Stenton, Welles, Vcl'ulloch, and Usher; Postnaster-General Dennison, and Attorney-General Speed; Generals Halleck, Meigs, Augur, and Todd; Senator Sumner, Rev. Dr. Gurley; Speaker Colfax; John Hay, Private Secretary ; Ex-Governor Farwell, Judge Carter, Judge Otto, Surgeon-General Barnes; Doctors Crane pnd Stono; Hon. Mr. Farnsworth, R. F. Andrews, and M. B. Field.
The size of the Engraving will be 21 inches by 32 inches, on large and heavy
BIZE OF THE PAINTING, 7 FEET BY 4+ FEET.
