Presents Professor Merrell Gage, retired head of the Department of Sculpture at the University of Southern California, describing the life and career of Abraham Lincoln as he sculpts a lifelike bust of the 16th President, making physical changes in the subject’s hair, beard and expression to correspond to events in Lincoln’s life. A remarkable short movie on the life of lincoln. I recall seing this in my elementary school class several times in the late 1960s via old film projector. Since then, I’ve gone on to be a scholar of lincoln and his life. It was a delight to see and I’m glad it is now online to enjoy as well. I saw this when it was first aired in the mid-1950s–I was ten years old at the time. And I have been searching for it ever since–thinking, when I couldn’t find it (it doesn’t appear in the TV Guide for the New York area where I lived), that it might just have been my imagination. It made a profound impression on me. It is precisely what art education should be, what history education should be–hands-on, literally, done with love, understanding, reverence. As a sculptor myself I find this video simply splendid. Mr Gage makes modelling look as easy as cake, he was an expert and one to emulate. The fact that he used his hands and fingers for much of the modelling instead of tools is inspiring
