Excerpt from Artists of Abraham Lincoln Portraits: William T. Matthews; Excerpts From Newspapers and Other Sources From the Files of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection
Matthews removed the painting in disgust, and kept it with him until his death. At that point, the artist's brother Charles tried unsuccessfully to sell the canvas. Then finally, in reduced circumstances, he used the life size Lincoln as collateral for a $250 loan. Charles Mat thews never repayed that loan and his brother's Lincoln portrait was not seen again until an American in Eng land who bought and sold antiques picked the painting up. That American was the brother of the Commack, Long Island woman who decided to have a garage sale two years ago.
