Abraham Lincoln Bust, East Garden Room

This photograph of Gutzon Borglum's bronze bust of President Abraham Lincoln was taken on July 20, 2017. Borglum, an American sculptor formally known as John Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum, made the bust in 1908. The large bust is installed atop a tall, stone pillar and has historically been displayed in a niche in the East Garden Room, visible to public visitors and guests as they enter the White House through the East Wing. Borglum was also famous for his work on Stone Mountain and Mount Rushmore.
