John Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum (1867-1941) was a prolific painter and sculptor who, aside from other works, has one hundred seventy public monuments to his credit. The Lincoln head on Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills — part of the gigantic mountain carving, which includes the faces of Washington, Jefferson, and Theodore Roosevelt — is based on this model. It was started in 1927, under Borglum’s direction, and was completed in 1942, eight months after the artists death. The scale rendition by the contemporary sculptor Joanna G. Kendall, from which this replica was made, has been hailed by Lincoln scholars and experts as a magnificent achievement which reflects all the dignity and grandeur of one of the most beloved American monuments.
