Framed, 18-1/2” x 22”, exceptionally attractive image of the Little Giant”. This innovative technique allowed the mass production of what appeared as realistic oil-on-canvas portraits. We can recall seeing only one other portraying Douglas, the famed "Little Giant" who lost to Abe in 1860, and passed away the following year. One repairble 1” punch in the image. This image was likely based on a photograph from about 1858, possibly by Jesse H. Whitehurst. Middleton was able to get testimonials for this print from a number of people who knew Douglas, including his brother-in-law and his widow, Adile, who on March 8, 1864 wrote of the print that “I consider it an admirable likeness, and one that will please his friends.”
