About the Lincoln Memorial
Established in 1922, this national monument was built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, who sits immortalized in marble as an enduring symbol of unity, strength, and wisdom. Towering over the Reflecting Pool, and anchoring the western end of the National Mall, it stands opposite the Washington Monument as an enduring symbol of Freedom. The Lincoln Memorial attracts anyone who seeks inspiration and hope.

About the Artist
Photographer and graphic artist Rob Decker studied photography with Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park during the summer of 1979. The experience solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all 59 major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
“I feel that it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards. I’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits, so when you buy one of these original works, you’re helping these trusts, conservancies and associations, too.”
