No, this isn't a photo of the Lincoln Memorial statue but is actually a plaster cast of the real thing. It's part of an exhibit at the National Gallery now called Designing the Lincoln Memorial. You can read more about it here. This year is the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth and this exhibit is centered on Daniel Chester French, the artist who created the famous statue and Henry Bacon, the architect of the memorial. I think I've exhausted all of my Washington pictures, so hopefully back to New York ones next week. Have a great weekend!
